Baxter Springs Historic Walking TourIn the late 1880s, this building was constructed by W. H. Horner, and in it he established the Drovers' and Farmers' Bank. The Bank was purchased by John M. Cooper and J. N. McDonald, who changed the name to the Traders' Bank. They were later joined in the bank by Will Hartley and Torrence Connor and established a new bank called the Baxter Bank. Cooper built a building on the corner across the street and moved the bank in 1900.
