Many buildings deserve preservation for their scale and representativeness of a period. But this particular Masonic building needs preserving because it embodies some of the finest work in classical stone.
The egg and dart work, the rosettes, the volutes on the brackets, the acanthus leaves, the entasis to the fluted columns, the brick enrichments and panels, the turned balusters, the pediments, all of it is executed with a master's detail and fine chisel work.
The definition to the Indiana Limestone enrichments is so fine and deliberate. This is more than just another preservation tragedy, this is an appalling affront to the artistic community
The Masonic dormitory building on the Masonic Home/Elisha Edgerton Farm site in Dousman, WI embodies some of the finest work in classical stone in the country. Because of the workmanship and unique history of this site, it is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
Recognizing the importance of preserving our historic resources, we the undersigned are opposed to the demolition of the Masonic Home dormitory building and the other historic buildings on the Masonic site in Dousman.
