54. Dimmitt Building (1890)

Hand-hewn limestone, cast iron and pressed metal components were creatively combined in this noteworthy Victorian commercial building. Name plates from Mesker Brothers iron works are visible on the floor pilasters. The ground floor, which was originally divided into two storefronts, has housed a wide variety of retail and commercial activities, including hardware, drugs, books and stationery, shoe company, harness shop and tailor. The second floor, accessible by an ornate cast iron exterior stairway, has served as office space, an early telephone exchange and a residence. The building is still owned by descendants of the Dimmitt family.
