826-828 Grant AvenueNovato, California

The Novato Bank (828 Grant Avenue) was built in 1913 by property owner, Frank Silva. The bank served ranchers, merchants, home builders, and the Novato area.
The adjoining section of the building (826 Grant Avenue)first served as a drugstore when initially built. The U.S. Post Office occupied the building from 1934 to 1951. When the city became incorporated in 1960, the first city hall was located here, until the city moved to the Presbyterian Church on Sherman Avenue in 1963.

The Novato Bank business was sold to Central Valley Bank in 1955. Central Valley Bank moved it[sic] operations to 1311 Grant Avenue and is now the Bank of the West.

The Silva family still owns the building and it is now utilized as a retail space.
