    • The Bean-Wright House stands on land which constitutes a portion of the Christian Kumpf and Benjamin Devitt Surveys. Theodore Bellinger acquired a large lot assembled from parcels owned by Simon Snider, Joseph E. Seagram and Christian Kumpf.
      Bellinger, a merchant and Town Councillor, built this impressive Victorian home with many Italianate characteristics in 1882. His widow sold the house in 1900 to David Bean, who was owner of the Waterloo Chronicle, a Town Councillor and Mayor of Waterloo from 1901 to 1903.
      The home's outstanding features include the frieze board and brackets under the wide eaves and the arched windows in the attic of the projecting bay on the north elevation. The bay window on that facade has a variety of very delicate mouldings. A double front door is highlighted by an arched course of brick and cast key stone as well as a four-paned transom.
      This example of the Italianate influence on late Victorian architecture was designated as a Heritage Landmark on the basis of its historic and architectural value and interest.1a
