This award winning project was worked on in phases over a 10 year period. Bringing back the tired 100 year old elaborately detailed neoclassical revival bank building was done in collaboration with Conrad Schmidt Studios.

The renovation included restoration of the 26 exterior cast iron windows, reconfiguring interior spaces for increased exhibit space, expanding the research library, improving accessibility for the public and building an orientation area for school groups.

Completed in 2001-2011.
