Dysart

-A A +A

Within Dysart, at the southwest corner of Main and Wilson streets, is the Dysart State Bank (c. 1919). The design is Beaux-Arts Classical, the street facade centering on a Roman temple with columns in antis that works like a thin frontispiece in front of the two-story brick building. With the exception of the new storefront glass door, the remaining fenestration of the first and second floors appears original to the building. While in town, do look at the Queen Anne house (c. 1889) at 409 Sherman. At first glance the house appears plain and one is quickly aware that it has been partially remodeled, but the sawed work within the two street-front gables is quite vigorous, especially the ornament within the upper gable (which somehow ends up suggesting cogwheels).
