-A A +A
c. 1856. Center of town, north side of Iowa 220

The Metz house is an ashlar block one-and-a-half-story dwelling whose fenestration, proportions, and roof slope are indicative of the Greek Revival. Brick chimneys project above the gable ends, and there are transom lights over the deeply recessed doorways.
