Inscription.  "Beyond the woman entering the National Bank is the southeastern corner of Eighth and Pine streets and the Central Drug Store, circa 1885. The Hotel Edwin Long replaced the drug store in 1931. Contractor M.E. Gillioz rushed the Hotel Edwin Long to completion in March 1931 so that it could serve as the headquarters for the Route 66 celebration. The hotel featured 65 guest rooms and the offices of the National Bank of Rolla. With its electrically-lighted sign on the roof, the building was a Pine Street landmark. It remains so today as the home of Phelps County Bank."

John F. Bradbury, Jr., Rolla The Old Town (St. Louis: C. Bradley Publishing, Inc., 2002), pp. 19, 50.
