1051 East South Temple
This home was built in 1920 for Newell C. Beeman and his wife Anna Jane Harvey. Beeman, a native of Phelps, New York, spent most of his working life engaged in various enterprises connected with iron and coal mining. He was superintendant of the Rocky Mountain Coal and Iron Company in Almy, Wyoming, for over three decades. During this time, he became involved in several other business ventures, including a large general store serving the miners in Almy. Beeman settled in Salt Lake City in the early 1890s and remained active in various lines of business. He died here at his home on March 20, 1927.
G. G. Gray built the Beeman home on this corner lot, which had been previously occupied by two structures. The one-and-one-half-story bungalow, primarily constructed of striated brick, is an example of the most popular house type built in Utah during the first quarter of the twentieth century. It shows Arts and Crafts-style architectural influences, including wide, overhanging eaves; a single story projecting porch; and geometrically patterned stained-glass windows. As is typical of the Arts and Crafts-style bungalow, the main roof ridge runs parallel to the street, and its slope is interrupted by a gabled dormer. The house has been restored by Larry V. and Sherry Poulson.
