William Beith HouseEdit profile
The William Beith House, now known as the Beith House Museum, is a Registered Historic Place located in St. Charles, Il. It largely retains its original riverstone exterior, while many other local structures have been significantly altered or covered in stucco. The Preservation Partners of the Fox Valley rescued the house in 1980 and restored it to operate as a museum of house preservation. Exhibits show mid-19th century decorative arts, and the techniques used to restore the interior features and exterior structure. The home serves as the headquarters for Preservation Partners.
