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 owners' possessions.   The house was given to the City of Porterville by the Zalud families youngest daughter, Pearle, when she died in 1970.
The Zalud House is listed in the National Historical Registry of Old Houses and in the National Register of Historic Places. 

The Zalud Rose Garden is a wonderful setting for outdoor weddings.
