Beauport, also known as Sleeper-McCann House, Little Beauport, or Henry Davis Sleeper House, is a historic house in Gloucester, Massachusetts. It was built starting in 1907 as the summer home of interior decorator and antique collector Henry Davis Sleeper. Situated on the rocks overlooking Gloucester Harbor, the structure encloses dozens of rooms decorated to evoke different historical and literary themes.
Beauport served as Sleeper's escape, a backdrop for summer parties, and as a showcase for his professional skills. The house was frequently published in books and magazines, including World of Interiors and Martha Stewart Living.
It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2003.
