Beckett Lane/ Helen Hanson House/Chatfield House


Address: 116 Beckett Lane, Morrison 80465

Architect William Beckett originally started (c. 1880) with a small rectangular structure with a gabled roof and a gabled front closed-in porch. Later, a lean-to addition was put on the left side and another flat roofed addition coming out about 10' further in the front. The flat roof is enclosed with a low white balustrade. William Beckett, a cobbler, came from London, England to Morrison. His wife, Lucy, and two daughters, Florence age 6, and Lucy age 7, joined him two years later. Lucy was a trained nurse and he made shoes for the family and a few choice customers. Beckett was employed by John Ross's hardware and lumber company. He was also a carpenter and built a number of small houses in Morrison.
