Event Lawn Belvedere
This unique structure was repurposed from the turret roof of this 1890 mansion located nearby at 199 Beaver Street. The stone steps are now a landscape wall. It was built by Civil War veteran and prominent attorney James Cunningham and designed by Thomas Boyd.
Boyd was also the architect of the 1877 Beaver County
Courthouse, destroyed by fire in 1932. A scaled
replica of that courthouse clocktower is the centerpiece
of Beaver's 2002 bi-centennial streetscape and now
serves as the town's icon.
