|The Memorial Building is locally significant under Criterion A as it is associated with the growth and development of governmental facilities in Dyersville. The Memorial Hall was designed as a multi-purpose building with city functions such as police, fire, and municipal offices; and social spaces such as the large community hall and gymnasium. The building also functioned as a memorial building, overseen by the local American Legion, which was housed in several rooms on the second floor. The building served as the political and social center of the community from its construction in 1929 to the present day. The renovation of the exterior in 2004 removed unsympathetic aluminum storefronts of first floor and installed new windows and doors that alluded to the original fenestration pattern of the building without replicating it. Most of the significant interior spaces remain intact including the central hall and stair, former American Legion rooms, and community hall. Most of the original functions except the American Legion, fire station and post office are also located within the building. While the basement and first floor interior have been remodeled, the second floor retains a high degree of integrity with a large community room with original stage, wood doors with decorative surrounds; and former American Legion rooms with an original vault with decorative door surround, and a built-in cabinet. Despite alterations, the Memorial building retains sufficient integrity of design, workmanship, materials, feeling, association, location, and setting to be eligible under Criterion A.
