William Haman House
424 Oak Street
Built 1909

The Haman House is typical of large homes built on ranches in the western United States during the period of its construction.

It has the basic form, geometry and scale of the Victorian homes of the period, but lacks the ornate curvilinear decoration and exotic roof lines that the latter implies. The home displays an elegant and austere simplicity in line and material, reflecting a quiet elegance which would not be too out of place in the turn-of-the-century railroad man's community of Roseville.

The house was built by William Haman who had been employed by Leland Stanford at Stanford's vast wine producing estate at Vina, and he came to Roseville in 1906 to act as Superintendent of the Roseville Ice and Beverage Company. Mr. Haman was a member the first Roseville City Council, long time member of the Placer County Board of Supervisors and "The Father of Royer Park."

The Haman House was lived in by the Haman family until May 1968.
