This lot was one of the first developed in Sidney with its use dating from 1820. It was headquarters for the German American Bank that collapses in a notorious 1904 bank failure. The First National Exchange Bank, founded in 1899, rented the space in 1905. Sidney's worst first destroyed the bank in 1914. The new fire-proof Colorado marble structure occupies the site. It was home to First National Bank, The Bank Discoth?que and currently Behr Design and Edward Jones.
