Built in 1851, this building, one of the oldest on Market Street, has been substantially altered from its original three storied Greek Revival style. It is constructed of brick and is one of the few buildings surviving the disastrous fires of the summer of 1856 which destroyed most of Market Street.

The third floor boasted a 75' by 70' hall in constant use for public meetings, concerts, and balls and was the center of Masonic activities from the 1870's until 1920. The first floor has housed a variety of mercantile establishments.

In 1918, the Wellington Bank moved from the Dickinson house diagonally across the street to the west half of the first floor on this location and in 1920 was reorganized as the Corning Trust Company; in 1948 it became the Lincoln First Bank.

The west half of the façade of the first story was changed to stone in the Neo-Classic style in 1920. The entire third story was removed in 1951 and the brick was covered with Kentucky limestone.
