Historical Church Celebrates Dysart's History
DYSART, Iowa – The Dysart Historical Society's Museum is an Iowa Great Place and an Iowa Silos and Smokestacks National Heritage Area. The center lets visitors take a trip back in time, it showcases items from the Civil War, both world wars, over 100 year old clothing, and vintage hairdressing equipment. The displays are a credit to the community.
"It is all community donations. We have a former Dysart guy who lives in Waterloo and he goes on the internet and finds stuff and gives it to us," said Ann Annis, Dysart Historical Society member.
The museum also includes an agricultural learning center, a one-room schoolhouse, and a memorial rose garden.
