Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 7, 1976):
Constructed in 1914, this simple cubical plan structure is one of the best-preserved of the small banks designed by Louis Sullivan late in his career.

The building is generally quite well cared for but does need some maintenance. There is some minor window leakage, the building columns have some surface rust and need re-guilding, and the building also needs some tuck pointing.

There are no changes since the last reporting period.
