The newly formed Calumet State Bank commissioned this handsome structure in 1906.1 Situated on the corner of Oak and Sixth Streets, the building was designed to complement the Coppo Block adjacent to it on 6th Street. Both are three stories with round-arched windows at the third story. The bank building is faced with Minneapolis pressed brick with sandstone trim. The façade, which curves around the corner, is topped with a galvanized-iron modillioned cornice.

The corner entrance led to a lobby that stretched along the Oak Street side. The banking room had a tiled floor, marble baseboards, and mahogany furniture. Both gas and electric fixtures were provided in the building. The upper floors were finished with quarter-sawn oak.
