1920. West side of S. Main St. between W. Platt and W. Pleasant streets

A Beaux-Arts composition was used here for a small-town bank. The entrance and windows are situated between a row of Ionic columns. The columns as well as the walls of the building are sheathed in glazed white terracotta. The design was produced by an architectural company from Sioux City that planned many banks in the Midwest in the teens and twenties.
