The 2013 Master Plan for Southport Park included recommendations for the rehabilitation of the Southport Beach House, a historic landmark in the City of Kenosha which is listed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. With the support of the Southport Park Association, a phased plan for exterior rehabilitation was proposed by Mayor Antaramian and adopted by the Common Council in the fall of 2018.
Phase 1 improvements were completed in 2019 and phase 2 improvements are currently underway. The Southport Park Association is working with the City of Kenosha to develop plans for ongoing uses of the Beach House upon completion of the exterior improvements. Our Utilization and Design Recommendations include interior layout and design upgrades intended to expand public programming and access on a continuous basis.
Due to ongoing renovations, the Southport Beach House will not be available for rentals through 2023. For questions regarding this project, please contact Public Works at 262-653-4050.
