The folder contains history of the corner typed up by O. H. P. McCord?

"Citizens Bank Building. Located at the southwest corner of Main Street and Broadway (present location of the Baker Abstract & Title Company and John Bohn's Clothing Store). The building was owned by Mrs. William Pollman, Miss Louise Geiser and Frank Geiser, and was built in 1899, first occupied by the Citizens Bank and the Baer Mercantile Company.

"On January 26th 1910, this and adjoining buildings occupied by the Superior Bakery and M. Weil & Company, were destroyed by fire. The total loss of buildings, stocks of merchandise, equipment and supplies in the store rooms and the office rooms on the second floor was approximately $300,000.00. A short time before the fire the Bank had moved to their new location at the corner of Main and Washington Streets, the former location of the J. B. Griswold General Merchandise Store, and a part of the present location of the Pioneer Federal Savings and Loan Association. Owned by Glen Miller and Bert Cramblet."
