NOTES
Additional Information:A 'site file' exists for this property. It contains additional information such as correspondence, newspaper clippings, or historical information. It is a public record and may be viewed in person at the Wisconsin Historical Society, State Historic Preservation Office. The Beardmore House is a two story American Foursquare building with the form and massing that suggests the Prairie Style. It has a low-pitched hip roof with wide overhanging eaves. The walls are stucco-covered and the upper story is accented with a belt course. Openings are generally single light sashes. A front porch also features a low-pitched hip roof, large stucco-covered columns, and window enclosures.

The house has some architectural interest as a Prairie style influenced American Foursquare house. It contributes to the architectural significance of the Lake Street Historic District.
