Beeches is a brick house in Frankfort, Kentucky whose main block was built in 1818. In 1979, when it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it was in a great lawn in a park-like setting, in contrast to 20th century encroachments on all sides.
It was deemed notable as an outstanding Federal-style structure and as one of just two surviving nineteenth-century buildings along the Leestown Pike in Franklin County, Kentucky. The other building, Glen Willis, one-fourth mile to the southwest, was already listed on the National Register.
It has a one-and-a-half-story section that was a c.1800 brick house, and a two-and-a-half-story main block, also in brick. It has later brick and frame additions to the rear and east side.
