In this building in 1856 Lucien Scott and John Kerr opened a private bank, Scott, Kerr and Company. In 1874 it was merged with the First National Bank of Leavenworth which had been established in 1868. The First National Bank holds National Charter No. 182. It is the oldest bank in Kansas and is the oldest national bank west of St. Louis.
