Constructed circa 1940 on a site occupied by the bank as early as 1908, the bank is one of the few surviving historic structures in downtown Foreman. It still contains many historic features, including decorative tile, original teller stations and their crystal glass inserts, and two vaults; a conventional walk-in vault and a “pedestal” vault cash safe. The stucco-over-brick facade combines Art Deco and Mediterranean elements. However, the rear wall has been breached, the hole partially blocked with plywood. The exterior brickwork is in very poor condition and threatened by the elements and vandalism.
