Theodore Roethke Museum

Preserving and promoting the legacy of the great American poet, Theodore Roethke. 




Preserving Saginaw’s history and creating the Carl Roethke Development Center for community enrichment and programming.

Making a tax-deductible gift to the Save the Stone House campaign directly supports all of the necessary repairs to the house:

  • Phase One: Roof replacement along with soffit and window repairs

  • Phase Two: Interior and exterior paint, attic insulation, and kitchen, furnace and electrical updating

  • Phase Three: Build programming to extend the Theodore Roethke museum, using Carl Roethke’s home for writer’s residency programs, workshops, and lectures

The house has been inspected by R.C. Hendrick & Son Construction and Ann Arbor Builders president, Alex de Parry. According to their assessment, with the necessary repairs, the house could be in great shape and is “definitely worth the effort to save this historical home.”
