Baker City Historic District
—Established 1874 —When constructed, this building was the third bank building to occupy this site. J.W. Virtue, a pioneer gold mining entrepreneur, built the first bank in 1873. It was the first stone building on Main Street. The building was ruined by a fire in 1888. The following year, a new building was completed for the First National Bank. The bank owners replaced that building with this structure in the early 1900s.
