Gloucester- Historic New England (formerly SPNEA) has completed its landscape restoration project at Beauport, Sleeper-McCann House here. Staff developed an overall plan for the landscape and hired the landscape architectural firm Reed Hilderbrand in 2009. The interpretive period for the landscape at Beauport focuses on the late 1920s through the early 1930s. This period was selected because it best represents the integrity of Sleeper’s original intentions, while presenting the landscape at the time Helena Woolworth McCann (second owner of the property) was first attracted to Beauport. The "Beauport restoration blog" has more information.
Beauport is one of thirty-six house museums owned and operated by Historic New England, the oldest, largest, and most comprehensive regional heritage organization in the country. For more information visit www.HistoricNewEngland.org.
