The Bishop Building stands as a testament to the strength and durability of volcanic tuff, which was used to construct many of Baker City's major buildings during the first decade of the 1900s. A fire gutted the building in 1940, but it remained structurally sound and soon was remodeled and reoccupied.
The building was constructed in 1908 for Frank W. Bishop, who operated a plumbing and hardware business in half of the building and rented the other half. Bishop also had mining interests in Baker County.
Following the 1940 fire, the upper facade of the building was covered by a solid plaster front. The plaster was removed in 1987 to restore the building's original appearance.
