Raynolds Bank Building

-A A +A
1882–1883, L. A. Allen, builder. 330–332 Main St. (southwest corner of 4th St.) (NR)

This two-story business block, Gothic Revival in style with an arresting corner tower, is clad in rough pink Castle Rock rhyolite trimmed with smooth local “prison stone.” A splendid corner entrance pediment is supported by granite pillars and topped by a second-story turret crowned with the slender, 20-foot-tall spire, a reconstruction of the original. Besides the bank of Frederick A. Raynolds, the edifice originally housed the McGee Mercantile before becoming the aerie of the Fraternal Order of Eagles in 1962.
