Thanks to Kathie at Riverside Cemetery for this info given on 1/14/2013:

Frank Beard's home is located in the Hagerty and Lloyd Historic District here in Aberdeen and a family still resides in it. Here is the information written up about the house: Frank Beard came to Aberdeen in 1881 to form a partnership with H.C. Beard and T. C. Gage in a general store. By the fall of that year, the framework for the store was in place on the southwest corner of Main Street and Third Avenue S.E. In December of 1881, Frank Beard, T. C. Gage, and C. F. Easton were among the early businessmen who met to plan the first Christmas celebration for the new town of Aberdeen. No spruce or pine trees were available so an agent of the Milwaukee Railroad was asked to obtain a tree for the occasion. On the morning before Christmas, the tree was delivered, but it proved to be a disappointment because it only stood five feet tall! Undaunted, the men used their pioneer ingenuity. They took the tree apart, re-attached the branches to a larger frame made of lath, and the festivities proceeded. It may also be of interest to you that T. C. Gage's wife was L. Frank Baum's sister-in-law. He and his wife lived in Aberdeen about a block away from the Beard house. He is best known for writing "The Wizard of Oz."
