First National Bank Building

-A A +A
c. 1905; 1936, Joseph Finger. 200 W. Davis St.
  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

Anchoring a corner of Courthouse Square is this narrow, one-story brick building, to which Finger's office lent considerable panache with a refacing and remodeling in the mid-1930s. The line of round-arched windows set in shallow relieving arches along the Main Street side and the use of Tuscan column–framed portals carrying open pediments give this diminutive building its sense of neoclassical elegance.
