First National State Bank of Adams Building
322 West Main Street
Adams, Minnesota 55909-9771

Open during normal business hours.

Purcell & Elmslie, 1920

This building served as the Adams Municipal Liquor Store for some years after it ceased to function as a bank. It is now owned by the City of Adams and is leased to a gift boutique and an insurance company.

This view shows the upper part of the original banking room, now cut off by a new, lower ceiling upon which flexible ductwork for heating and air conditioning is laid. The art glass front window and ceiling light fixture remain in situ. This photo was taken from the mezzanine at the rear of the building.

Some other features of the building such as the fireplace (with mural) and tellers’ windows are still intact.

Placed in the National Register of Historic Places, 1986.
