Long Description:

111 East Main Street (Neosho Savings and Loan Association): This is a two-story, brick and stone veneer Temple Front commercial building constructed in 1922. The building is three bays wide with full height Corinthian columns and pilasters on the main facade. The building's storefront was altered ca. 1960 with the addition of anodized aluminum, metal and glass display windows and doors. On the second story of the upper facade are three bays of original one-over-one wood sash, tri-part windows. Above the second story is a stone cornice and frieze inscribed "Neosho Building and Loan Association." Above this frieze is a concrete cornice with modillion blocks and dentils. At the roofline is a stone parapet wall. Windows on the alley facade have been bricked in. The interior was remodeled in 1992.

This building was originally the First National Bank and was built in 1905 on a lot purchased from M.E. Benton. In 1922, the bank purchased the adjoining lot and building and remodeled and rebuilt the two buildings fronting forty feet on the square. The Neosho Building and Loan Association dates to 1884 and occupied several locations before moving into the First National Building ca. 1965.

– National Register Nomination

The building appears to be in very good condition. He continues to serve as a bank building but now is the Boulevard Bank.
