House could get historic status

A 1929 home in the Hayes-Barton neighborhood could be the latest addition to the Raleigh Historic Landmark registry.

The John E. Beaman house sits at the corner of White Oak Road and Beechridge Road, a few blocks east of Glenwood Avenue.

Beaman was a commercial building contractor who built the Georgian Revival home for his family.

The N.C. Department of Cultural Resources will evaluate the house’s historical significance ahead of a public hearing that is set for May 7.

The city has 151 designated Raleigh Historic Landmarks.
