Thanks for posting the photos. The lot that the bank stands on is where my great grandfather, John S. Smith, staked his claim on 16 Sep 1893. The lot was contested by five other individuals, but he was awarded the lot in Jan 1895.
"John Smith received word Tuesday from the townsite board at Perry, that the decision of that board was in his favor for one of the most valuable business corners in that town. The lot is worth $3,000. John is feeling jubilant over his success." -Tecumseh Herald, 19 Jan 1895
"Jas. [John] S. Smith, of the Smith Bros. grocery firm, was awarded lot 27 in block 24, by the local townsite board yesterday. This is one of the most valuable lots in the city. It is the one known as the "Pabst brewery" lot, and is located at the corner of Sixth and C. Mr. Smith is to be congratulated in winning this important case." -Perry Daily Times, 16 Jan 1895
