The stately home at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Seventh Street was built in 1903 by Nina and Wallace Rogers, who were involved in the lumber industry. Constructed of redwood in the Prairie style of architecture, the house encompasses more than 7,000 square feet as well as a lovely garden and terrace.
In 1950, the house passed to Eleanor and Gardiner Green, relatives of the Rogers family. In January of 2003, the house became the property of the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art through a bequest of the Greens who were longtime supporters of the Museum.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a pivotal structure in the Laurel Historic District, the Rogers-Green House is highly significant in terms of its age and its architecture. A rare example in Laurel of the Prairie style of architecture, the house stands as one of the primary examples of the Belle Epoch period. Outstanding features include original Tiffany light fixtures and extensive leaded glass windows.
LRMA currently utilizes the upstairs portion of the house as office space and makes the ground level rooms available for meetings, receptions, and celebrations. The original carriage house, located behind the home, has been renovated and is now used as studio space where art classes are offered.
The Rogers-Green House is the perfect location for all your special events – weddings, receptions, luncheons, or parties. To book your event at the Rogers-Green House, contact Angie Jolly, events coordinator, at 601.649.6374.
