New First National Bank –

 in July of 1975, construction had started on the new First National Bank located on the corner of 2nd Avenue and Main Street SW. White vertical pre-cast concrete panels formed the exterior walls of the second and third floor. Each panel was 6 feet wide and 32 feet tall. The two foot wide windows appear bronze from the outside. The main entrance was next to a 60 –car parking lot and facing to the south. The lower level contained a 1,906 square foot Safe Deposit Vault. The contractor was Mattson construction. First National Bank eventually became Wells Fargo Bank. The Bank moved to two smaller locations in Minot. The building in Downtown Minot now sits empty awaiting the next phase of its existence.
