First National Bank
1886. 1915, Frederick J. DeLongchamps. 352 Bridge St.
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

DeLongchamps, who designed four of Winnemucca's handsomest buildings, added a second story and modified the first-story facade of the First National Bank in 1915, giving the original brick building a dignified solidity. Stucco, scored to look like coursed ashlar, covers the exterior walls. Two Doric columns supporting a short entablature of triglyphs and metopes stand at the clipped corner of the building at Bridge and 4th streets. The entrance on the 4th Street side is flanked by pilasters and capped with a heavy cornice and ornament made of scrolls and a crest topped by a sphere. DeLongchamps could not, however, overcome the awkward overall composition in which the long south-facing wall turns the corner and ends abruptly on Bridge Street.
