Dexter

-A A +A

Dexter's Community Meetinghouse (1917), located at 207 Dallas Street, appears as if it were a single-floor round barn set down within a town. Its walls are brick, and its roof is suspended from trusses covered over with roofing material. The building's image is pragmatic, its only ornamentation being three layers of brick that project out at the top of the walls to receive the roof. The building was, according to local records, designed by Maj. Matthew Leander.
