This two-story awesome brick building must have been impressive in its day. After the city folded, people used the bricks for other projects and all that is left are a couple of walls. I visited back in 1981. It is worth a side-trip if you are in the area. Watch out for unmarked vertical mine shafts on the nearby hillsides!

Gary, from the Black Range Lodge, opened the bank for us for a little tour. The building maintains its historical status with the existing interior wooden structures including the teller's window. The original vault remains and is incredible to see. There are many historical photos and other artifacts. Absolutely worth a visit if you are history buff.

Nice original building with local artists gallery. The bank has been turned into a museum, well staged by a local resident. The vault has a beautiful ornate door made by Diebold of Canton, Ohio.

original, beautiful, the safe, structurally sound being so old and separate building within the bank itself. The safe door is even painted. I believe 5 windows for transactions still intact

Find the time it's opened and give it an hour. There are some great artifacts and you can get some oral history from the docent.
