Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 7, 1976):
Small in scale, the National Farmer's Bank (1907-08) is admirably adapted to its purpose: In addition to the banking rooms, there is a farmer's exchange room intended for the private business or social transactions of the bank's clients; a women's parlor; a private consultation room for conference with the bank's officers; and the president's office. Embellished with magnificent ornament, this is a superb example of the design partnership of Louis Henry Sullivan and George Grant Elmslie.

There was damage to one 12"x40" window in the President's office. The iron frame will be remade and most of the glass was saved. A twin window will serve as a model to help re-create the broken one.

There are no changes since the last reporting period.
