Charles R. Fish built this two-story, red brick commercial edifice for the Bank of Clear Creek County. Since the 1960s, it has been a legendary bar and restaurant, the Red Ram. Corbeled and diapered brick-work and a pressed metal frieze top the facade. The sturdy granite foundation forms the walls of the basement hall. A balcony with tables lines the west wall overlooking a mounted ram's head and a golden oak back bar whose mirror is framed by 10-foot Ionic columns and a classical entablature.
