Hyrum Straw Block
The two-story, brick, Victorian Eclectic style Hyrum Straw Block was Built in 1900, shortly after Straw had purchased the property. Straw had acquired this lot and the Moroni Miner Block, which was located next door at 260 South Main Street.
The construction of the Straw Block was financed by a $1,000 mortgage obtained by Straw in December of 1899. When originally built, the building was a small one-part, one-story block. In 1903, the property was sold to Thomas E. Child. Mr. Child, a brick mason by trade, owned the building for 20 years, during which he added a second story to the building for use as apartments. Serving many commercial enterprises for 80 years, the property was sold in 2001 to W. William Brown, Jr., and Marilyn Brown, who established the Brown Art Gallery.
