This building was built by L. W. Shepherd & B. C. McQuesten as a bank. It was the first location of Peoples National Bank, which bought the property in 1872 and then relocated to 137 S. Main around a decade later. Originally, it had arched window and door openings on the ground floor. A variety of businesses have been at this location including the Kansas Liberal newspaper, a grocery, a drug store, insurance, abstract and title & real estate offices, a beauty salon, and a coffee shop. It has also served many mercantile businesses, including a 5 & 10 cent store, candy shop, jewelry store, and photography store.

A contributing building to the Historic Ottawa Central Business District placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.
