Beaconsfield Historic HouseA beautiful example of Victorian architecture, the elegant Beaconsfield was built in 1877 for James Peake, a wealthy shipbuilder and merchant, and his wife, Edith. It boasts 25 rooms, eight fireplaces and imported chandeliers, and was built with all the modern conveniences of its day. Tours of the home include details on its design and tales of its residents—both the Peakes and those who lived in the house after them when it served as a young women’s home and a residence for nursing students.
