The McCracken Bank is no longer a bank, but it was completed in October 2, 1901...the building is made of native stone and measures 25 x 50 feet. The builders were Tom McKenzie and Andy Murphy. R.A. Peterson did the stone work, Frank Reed and Mr. Sultzer did the carpenter work and Sam Cathwood did the painting.....in November of the same year a new brick sidewalk was put around the building.
Today this beautiful structure has been maintained and the attached side buildings have been restored by Francis Zeller and his wife of fifty plus years Julia (Davenport) Zeller. Julia graduated in 1938 from McCracken High School.
In 2001, McCracken Alumni and friends hosted an art show and sale in these buildings....this show took place during the annual McCracken rodeo and alumni celebration always the second Friday and Saturday in July..
