One of the ancient log houses on the old square was razed in 1906 to make way for the Wollner Building, one of Lewistown's first modern structures. The three-story brick building has a chamfered corner entrance and wooden storefronts with large single plate glass windows framed by pilasters and a dentiled entablature. The building is crowned with a sheet metal dentiled cornice, crenellated brick parapet, and a pediment over the corner entrance. The Lewistown Trust Company was located on the first floor, and office space and a dance studio occupied the upper levels.
