Description 

This narrow building located between the Petritz Building and the Daly Bank Building is noteworthy for its distinctive copper clad bow windows on the second story. The ground floor has been sadly modernized.

The building was built as the Anaconda Company Pay Office and is adjacent to the Daly & Company Bank Building. Marcus Daly, principal owner of the Anaconda Company, was a partner in the bank and owned much of the town which was built solely to provide housing and services for the employees of the company's smelter.
