W. H. Bard House

-A A +A
c. 1906. 259 Bering St.

This foursquare house has a hipped roof with an eyebrow dormer. The wood-framed building, now sided with wide clapboards in contrast to the original narrow ones, was built for William H. Bard, who owned one third of the Bessie Bench mining claim, found in February 1906. A lawyer, Bard also served Nome as mayor, councilman, municipal judge, and city attorney. By 1909, he had moved to Seattle.
