Farmers Bank Building

-A A +A
c. 1916. West side of 6th St., south of K Ave.

The two-story portion of this limestone-sheathed bank building is relatively conventional, including its updating of glass brick inserted within the lower windows. The entrance to the right, which is only a single story high, is articulated by horizontal stones and by pronounced voussoirs above. Although it is part of the adjoining two-story section of the bank, this little entrance comes close to appearing as a completely separate, miniaturized building.
