Next door neighbors of Vesta and Orion Houses, the location and history of Beal House as a cooperative made it worth saving. The SHC acted quickly.

Unfortunately, the property was purchased in very poor condition and required extensive renovations during the summer of 2009.  A hefty summer work load and lots of member labor contributions returned Beal to it's former glory. Beal house now boasts restored hardwood floors, energy efficient windows, beautiful bedrooms, new bathrooms, and a large kitchen.
