Inscription.  "Cyrus H. Frost, David W. Malcolm, Joseph Campbell, Edmund Ward Bishop, A.S. Long, and others organized the National Bank of Rolla in 1871. The offices were in the Malcolm Building, on the north side of Eighth Street (now part of the parking lot next to Alex's Pizza) until 1931 when the bank moved into the new Hotel Edwin Long. The bank withstood hard times during the Panic of 1873, but railed in 1932."
