Kenosha’s National Treasure On The Shore of Lake Michigan
On January 8, 2003 The Southport Park Beach House was listed in the
National Trust for Historic Preservation National Register of Historic Places.
Architect Chris Borggren’s unique design combined a mix of classic and contemporary styles.
The exterior blends Tudor Revival details with an overarching Mediterranean Revival theme.
Repurposed marble was used to create the Art Deco ballroom, featuring geometric
ornamentation common to the style. The lower level bath house changing
facilities were in continual use for decades, by local citizens and visitors to Kenosha.
