"The mausoleum was built around 1912 by Jonathan Pressley ("Press") Dyar (4/15/1845-6/18/1923).
"Press" Dyar, was very successful in business and farming there. He was also an active civic leader in Adairsville. He owned stores there on the main street. If you stand at the depot, the building to the far left where the police station is, or was, was his. His name and the dates of establishment are on the threshold there unless it has been removed. Dyar Street in Adairsville was named for him and the family. "Press" was a controversial figure, being active in the Republican Party. Given the place and time, such was akin to being in league with the devil in most eyes. He also had a somewhat domineering personality and was outspoken. "Press," as a youth, worked on "The General" of "Great Locomotive Chase" fame." ~ Cliff Dyar
