Inscription.  The old Presbyterian church occupied this site until it was purchased and demolished by General J.O. Amos in 1892. He built a three-story structure here to house the Sidney Daily News and Shelby County Democrat newspapers. That business remained until it was relocated to Vandemark Road in 1975. The First National Exchange Bank purchased the property, removed the Amos building and built its present home in 1976. The sculptures adorning the façade, created by sculptor Robert Koepnick and cast here in Sidney, were commissioned by local historian William A. Ross, Jr. The symbols represent import landmarks and ideals of county history. It is the current home of US Bank.
 
Erected 2008 by Sidney County Historical Society, Sidney Visitors Bureau and US Bank.
