Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 27, 2003):
Beauport is nationally significant in American material culture as an important early collection of American antiques in distinctive arrangements housed within a unique architectural setting that influenced the appreciation, collection, and interpretation of American material culture, as well as the practice of interior design. This collection and arrangement by nationally-noted antiquarian, collector and interior decorator, Henry Davis Sleeper, was influential in the development of Henry Francis du PontÂ’s Winterthur and other museum programs.
