Long Description:
The Morris County State Bank commissioned architect J. H. Leedy of Council Grove and contractor & builder Louis Peterson also of Council Grove for a new building which was started in Oct. 1886 and completed by April 28, 1887.
The 25-foot wide building has two stories with a basement and is a fine example of Western commercial architecture influenced by the High Victorian Italianate style. The total cost of the building and lot was only $15,000. In 1900, the bank secured a national charter and the name was changed to Council Grove National Bank.

The building served the Bank until a 1978 fire damaged it.
Current tenants include a law office and the Heart of the Flint Hills Chapter of the Santa Fe Trail Association.
