The Wiegand Building, 202 South Broadway

This building was home to Citizen's National Bank and was completed in 1892. This Richardsonian Romanesque inspired design was created by C. A. Dunham, architect. Particularly notable is the balcony with the decorative iron work railings. The imposing corner turret had its cap removed during modernization.

Adam Wiegand was the owner and operator of a dry goods store located at the corner of South Broadway Avenue and West William. Street. The three-story brick structure at the southwest corner of Broadway and William was for many years the location of a bank, Guiney’s Place (a bar and restaurant), a drug store, and a discount sales operation,

Wiegand purchased Albert Lea Bottling Works in 1904.
