1. Billings' First Bank - 1883 Marker
Inscription.  The Stebbins, Post and Mind Bank opened its door on Minnesota Avenue in 1883. It served as Billings' only financial institution until 1886, when Edward Bailey and Parmly Billings established the town's second private bank across the tracks on Montana Avenue. The Stebbins, Post and Mind Bank was chartered as the First National Bank in 1884. The bank moved a year from its original frame building into a new permanent brick and stone building on the northwest corner of North 27th Street and Montana Avenue.
