Inscription. C. L. Gillett, businessman and member of the first Glendale City Council, built this two-story brick building. The first floor was used for businesses, and the second floor was used as a meeting hall. E. J. Fiock bought the building in 1910, for his general merchandise store which operated until 1916. Glendale State bank bought the building that year and remodeled the first floor for the bank, and converted the second floor into offices. Established in 1909, Glendale State Bank was the city's first banking institution.
