Description 

"FIRST NATIONAL BANK - Farmer, trader, and grist mill operator Andrew Jackson Davis, reportedly Montana’s first millionaire, founded the First National Bank in partnership with influential politician Samuel T. Hauser in 1877. Upon Davis’ death in 1890, a nephew of the same name took over banking operations. The younger Davis planned new quarters commensurate with the bank’s dignified status. Prominent architects Link and Haire designed the new Greek Revival style building, completed in 1909 and enlarged in 1915. Square classical lines, ornately carved stone, and decorative terra cotta highlight this well-preserved landmark." - NRHP/Montana Historical Society Plaque
