The bank managed to withstand the fire the longest out of all the building destroyed by the 1893 fire. The location was home to more than one Fargo business and office. Thomas Baker Jr. Fire Insurance was located in the basement and the United States Court Room was on the second floor. Please take a moment to soak in the irony of the fact that a fire insurance office burned down.
