Scope & Content Constructed ca. 1890. Following the earthquake of 1886, Kate McCloy purchased these properties, including the site of a brick house owned by the attorney B. Pressley Smith that was listed as "badly wrecked" by the disaster. McCloy built a large 2½ story, side-hall-plan house with a front, closed gable, double-tiered bay window, and 2-story piazza at 88 Beaufain Street. Her family built a smaller house of similar plan with an Italianate doorway at 86 Beaufain Street, and retained it until 1910.
