Also featured at ROVE is the Held House, the top portion of an original house from Old Valdez, featuring artifacts and furnishings from Old Town. At the time of the Good Friday Earthquake, this structure was owned by Theodore M. Held and Darlene Held. The “Hip Roof” design ensured that snow would slide off during Valdez’s snow-heavy winters. The house was originally known as the Krch House. In 1962, the Krch family [pronounced “Kirtch”] sold the house to the Helds. In the early 2000s, the house was donated and moved to the Valdez Museum by then-owner Bill Amberg.
