Discover the fascinating history of the original owners (the Beebe Family), the house, and grounds. Discuss the exterior architecture and compare photos of the house throughout the past century. Hear the story of how this superb historic building was saved by grassroots community support. Learn about the tenacity and vision that continues as new research on the structure, its story, and that of the people who lived here add to the building’s significance.
