Description 

This building was originally built in 1890 for the Bank of Wallace. The bank failed by the year's end and another bank took over, struggled, and also failed. In 1892, the First National Bank of Wallace was created and occupied the site until 1916. The second story was added in 1895 with a press metal turret. The rear entrance features double doors with leaded glass, which are topped with a fan window pattern of elaborate leaded glass. There is some date conflict on this work. Herman Rossi bought the building for his insurance office in 1917.
