Fairbury City Museum Announces Summer Feature and ContestFairbury City Museum Announces Summer Feature and Contest

June 2011 - “Architectural Elements” - the beautiful and unique details that can be found on Fairbury’s oldest buildings are the subject of Fairbury City Museum’s focus for the months of July and August. For the remainder of the  summer tourism season, there will be special emphasis on Fairbury’s downtown historic district and the various architectural styles employed by builders during downtown Fairbury’s various stages of growth and prosperity. The largest amount of construction in the historic district took place between 1900 and 1929.

Fairbury City Museum Announces Summer Feature and ContestThe Fairbury Commercial Historic District encompasses an area spanning approximately ten blocks and 117 properties. Virtually every street within the boundaries of the historic district are paved with brick, circa 1916. The district is distinguished by the prominent courthouse square, where the architecturally and historically significant Jefferson County Courthouse sits. The oldest buildings in the district are located around the courthouse square and the commercial center of Fairbury revolves around the courthouse. Many of the commercial buildings in the Fairbury Commercial Historic District are extremely intact. They exhibit high physical integrity and retain their original form and ornamentation, particularly in the upper stories. These historic buildings are still occupied by businesses and as a result, a bustle of activity continues to occur around the courthouse square.

Fairbury City Museum Announces Summer Feature and ContestThe Fairbury Commercial Historic District represents a span of architectural periods ranging from the oldest extant, late nineteenth century building displaying false-front construction through turn-of-the-century high styles, to more modem influenced properties. The buildings in the district represent architectural development trends typical of Nebraska commercial centers. Fine representatives of Italianate, Romanesque Revival, Queen Anne, Late Gothic Revival, Neo-Classical Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, and twentieth century commercial vernacular architectural styles and forms are located within the district.

Fairbury City Museum Announces Summer Feature and ContestTo celebrate Fairbury’s beautiful architecture and to raise awareness of the unique elements present in various buildings around the square and in the district, the Fairbury City Museum will be sponsoring a contest in which citizens can view photographs of architectural details and match them to the buildings to which they belong.
