History

The Alliance Bank Company was founded in 1872 and operated out of a different three-story building. The building at 502 East Main Street was built in 1914, designed by Lewis W. Thomas.

The bank occupied the first floor, with the five upper floors as commercial office space. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on July 28, 1995.
