— Historic Downtown New Ulm —

The Brown County Bank is among the oldest commercial properties within the district. As the local economy recovered from the devastating effects of the Dakota Conflict, the city found itself without a bank following the demise of the First National Bank in 1867.

Four years later, a group of local investors organized the Brown County Bank. In November 1871, it opened for business at this corner location. A newspaper report cryptically stated that the plan was made by a Mankato architect without naming the firm. In June 1874, the bank was sold to three Rochester businessmen, who operated it as a private financial institution until 1892. In that year, local investors, including Congressman John Lind and brewery president Otto Schell, gained control as stockholders. The bank continued operations until 1931 when its assets were transferred to the Citizens Bank.

The building has undergone few changes since its construction. The front was remodeled in 1901 with newly fashionable plate glass windows.
