- Upscale 2x7680x6194
Significance: The First National Bank of Mankato, built in 1913, is recognized as one of Mankato's most handsome commercial buildings. Designed by the St. Paul firm of Ellerbe and Round, the bank is one of the state's finest examples of organically integrated Prairie Style architecture. Contextually it relates to the influence of the Prairie Style in the rural towns and small cities of Greater Minnesota and to the development of downtown Mankato as a regional center of commerce and finance. The bank building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the Minnesota Historical Society on 30 July 1974.
