Inscription. The Second Farmer's Bank was constructed in 1918 and operated until 1968. The bank had sound financial resources for its size and in 1933, following a bank moratorium called by President Roosevelt, Farmer's Bank was among the first in the nation to reopen. The building has been used in movies and as a forest fire lookout station. Today it houses offices.

In later years, scenes from two Hollywood movies were filmed in the historic building, including 'Charlie Varrick', starring the late Walter Matthau." (Submitted on October 27, 2009.)
