802 Grand AvenueOn March 15, 1887, excavation for a three-story brick and stone building began on lots at 802 Grand Avenue for the First National Bank building. At the time, The Glenwood Echo newspaper reported that the First National Bank offices would occupy the northwest corner of the first floor and would be constructed of iron and glass with a fireproof vault extending from the basement to the second floor. There would be three storefronts on the Eighth Street side the building. Room for rented office space and luxury apartments would occupy the second and third floors of the building.
