  • Proposal offered to renovate Edmond's Rodkey House

    By Diana Baldwin, Staff Writer

    ? The Rodkey House, one of the oldest houses in Edmond, would become a place for small weddings and educational classes if city council members decide to spend an estimated $300,000 to build restrooms in Stephenson Park.

    The Edmond Historical Society and Museum has received a $100,000 anonymous gift to renovate and run utilities to the house that was built in the early 1900s by Isaac Rodkey, owner of the Rodkey Mill.

    The house was donated to the city and moved in 2007 to Stephenson Park, off Littler Avenue between Fourth and Fifth streets.

    To get the anonymous donation, the city must build American With Disabilities Act-accessible restrooms next to the house to be used by people visiting the house and the park, said Anita Schlaht, executive director of the Edmond Historical Society and Museum.

    The society has been notified it will receive a $25,000 grant to pay to furnish the house, which was moved to the park from the southwest corner of Littler Avenue and Campbell.

    A plan to turn the vacant house, which currently has no utilities, into the Rodkey House Event and Education Annex of the Edmond Historical Society and Museum was proposed to the city council this week during a workshop.

    The anonymous donor is an older man who said he wants to see the house opened during his lifetime.

    The annex would be a joint project by the city of Edmond, the parks and recreation department and the historical society.

    Once renovated, it would be used as an extension of the museum?s educational programming and for an event center that could be rented, Schlaht said.

    ?The current proposal would maintain the integrity of the house while making it accessible for educational programming as well as rental space for small weddings, receptions and community gatherings,? the 32-page proposal states.

    ?Documentation of the history of the house and the Rodkey family would be incorporated into the decor of the restored house.?

    Artifacts would be preserved and displayed in the museum adjacent to the house in order to save money on extensive security and environmental requirements for housing artifacts in the home.

    Edmond Historical Society and Museum board members and staff, along with Rodkey family descendants, think that is a sustainable plan that would offer people access to the house and provide the income needed for staffing, programming and upkeep of the house.

    Council members asked city staffers to write up a memorandum of understanding so they could have in writing who would be responsible for what part of the deal.

    No vote was taken because the plan was presented during a workshop and not during an official meeting.

    ?We can?t take action,? Assistant City Manager Steve Commons said.
