Once a bank used for cash exchanges in the early 20th Century, the Echo Bank Building has now been preserved by the Echo Historical Museum. The most stunning thing about this structure is its Roman Classical style of architecture reminiscent of the 20th Century. The building’s exterior is in glazed terracotta and brick, while the interiors feature impressive marble flooring and iron-banking teller’s cages. Now a museum, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
