— April 1902 —

In 1902 the Bank of Richmond occupied the main floor. The upstairs offices housed the early phone exchange. Richmond's first paper, 'The Point Richmond Record' was published by Lyman Naugle in the basement. In 1910 the building was remodeled and the bank floor was lowered to street level. Coroner Dr. C.L. Abbott opened his emergency hospital upstairs in 1914. In 1922 the upstairs was converted to lodgings and called the Bank Hotel. In the early 1940's it was named Bank Club Billiards. From 1986-2001 the main floor was Bob and Sherry's Variety Store. Their family residence was upstairs. In 2003 Mark Howe restored the building.
