Baker Loan and Trust Building
Baker City Historic District
—Established 1874 —
The building was designed by architect C.F. Hummel of Boise to conform to the new Osborn Building to the south. The granite trim on the first story and the polished granite surrounding the entrance provided a dignity suitable for a financial institution.
The Baer Mercantile grocery store occupied the rear of the building during its early years. The Baker Commercial Club, a precursor to the chamber of commerce, had club rooms and an office on the second floor.
