First State Bank of Baggs

 

 
 

Read All About It:

Constructed in 1907-1908 to house the First State Bank of Baggs, the Bank Club Bar is one of a few of the original buildings still standing in the community. Though not a false front, the bank is an excellent example of western 'boom town' attempts to provide urban scale and create a sense of stability in isolated small towns.

The structure embodies distinctive characteristics of Greek Revival and classical trends popular near the turn of the twentieth century. It represents the ingenuity of westerners, limited by financial resources and access to authentic materials, in creatively copying the popular urban 'look' of the day.
