The Zalud House is a nostalgic glimpse into the past. Built in 1891, it is one of the few houses of that era that has not undergone remodeling. It has the mansard roof construction, which makes the house unique in its style of architecture. From the time the house was built, only the Zalud family lived in the home. In fact, it is one of the few museums in the nation that is furnished entirely with the original owner's possessions. The house was given to the City of Porterville by the Zalud family’s youngest daughter, Pearle, when she passed away in 1970. The Zalud House is listed in the National Historical Registry of Old Houses and in the National Register of Historic Places. The historic Zalud House Museum is surrounded by a 1930's style rose garden that is perfect for a delightful outdoor wedding. Given its timeless elegance. the Zalud Rose Garden is indeed a wonderful setting for to exchange vows. For the most special of life’s occasions, bring your family and friends to the Zalud House to celebrate this momentous day.
