Architect:  Rhatigan, Richard T. and Maurice B. Levien
Year: 1965
Current Status: Significantly Altered
Award:  Bronze Plaque for Banks

Situated on the upper deck of a two-tiered shopping center, originally the building had a range of facade materials including pine log stone or pinola (a common veneer stone), white glazed brick, aluminum windows, and fieldstone details. Today the structure holds a Burger King restaurant and is completely unrecognizable from its days as a bank. There is a small area of pinola along the base of the building by the entrance which could be remnant of the previous design.
