Pearson House (Pearson Brick Company)

-A A +A
Pearson Brick Company
1918. 115 E. North St.

This unusual, charming Tudor Revival building was designed by the owner of a brick company to showcase his wares. Five different brick bonds are employed on the facade. Diamond pane windows, half timbering in the gable end and the dormers, and drip molds complete the effect. The foyer has a mural of the Three Little Pigs by local artist Grace Parker, illustrating the cleverness of those who build with brick.
