Designed by Mary Spence, one of only two female architects listed in the 1922 Cleveland City Directory, the building stands mid-block between West 100th and West 101st Streets.

Two Romanesque arches with raised moldings dominate the stone façade with the east arch containing an alcove entrance to the ground floor storefront and a separate door to the second floor offices. The arches feature large keystones with carved shields. There are cathedral-style lamps at both ends of the first floor façade. The window bay has a low, false, carved balustrade. The second floor contains an unadorned entablature.

Built as the Farmers Bank, the building later served as a branch location for the Central Union National Bank (later Central National Bank).

Architect: Mary Spence
