The First National Bank building was constructed at the southeast corner of the Denver/Interocean intersection (currently the Lions Club Mini Park north of Scheunemann’s). Opening day at the new up-to-date bank building was Dec. 3, 1910. Other areas of the building included office rooms, a barber shop in the basement and a lodge in the upper story. Holyoke’s main intersection was dominated by banks in the early 1900s, with the Farmers and Merchants Bank on the southwest corner and the Citizens State Bank on the northwest corner. Sometime later it became Phillips County State Bank, among other businesses. The building was gutted by fire Feb. 15, 1978, when it housed Ralph’s Bar. — Source: Phillips County Museum
