  • About Beardslee

    The Castle

    Built by Augustus Beardslee in 1860 with the craftsmanship of masons from Ireland and Switzerland, the limestone building is modeled in the style of an Irish castle. The building has suffered two major fires, the first in 1919 nearly destroyed the building and much of the stonework needed to be reworked. The oak paneled floors and ceilings were completely redone as nothing was left but the stone shell. A fire in 1989 gutted the kitchen areas and the building was left vacant for 3 years. After a two year restoration the restaurant reopened in 1994 under the present ownership.
