About this Exploration:

Under the modern facade is what is left of the Farmers & Merchants Bank building, which occupied the building for 87 years.   Its two-story, raised-basement brick building was an architectural triumph for the town.  There were lodge meeting rooms and offices on the second floor, a barber shop in the raised basement and the New York Store on the first floor of the northern addition. 

The building went through a series of transformations in the second half of the 20th century.  Two major alterations were the elimination of the angled corner entrance and the lowering of the first floor to street grade.  It has housed the Nekoma State Bank since 1986.
