Bank of Commerce

Built during the 1912-1914 coal miner's strike, the Bank of Commerce building stands as an enduring fixture on the downtown landscape. Built with a classical conservatism, this building represented tradition, prosperity and stability in a time that was anything but.

Victor Horsburgh was the Bank of Commerce staff architect and he designed this building to standard plans. With its massive four columns, and beautiful entry, it will have you looking up, way up. Standing across or down the street is the best vantage as it a massive structure.

Sympatically restored in 1997, the building still retains its glory both inside and out.  Real Estate Webmasters is the present occupant.
