A Voice of Colorado No. 229 Version 5.0:

The First National Bank, located at 3728 Cleveland Avenue in Loveland, CO., was added to the National Register on August 10, 2000. The building was constructed in 1919, and features architecture that expresses functionality in the financial industry through a sense of stability and strength in the Commercial style: A symmetrical façade, classical detailing, and patterned brick work which embody a commanding and distinguished presence in comparison to surrounding structures.

The First National Bank building was home to the primary financial institution for Loveland, CO. from 1919 until 1933, and provided financial services to local businesses as well as farmers who lived and worked nearby.

In the early 1930s the bank went into receivership and went out of business with the onset of The Great Depression.
