Since 1930, First Interstate Bank occupied the corner of W. Callender and South 2nd Streets in Livingston. Through the decades, the bank building underwent numerous additions and renovations but continued to be a cornerstone of the downtown business district. Evolutions in the banking industry and client needs made it apparent that a change was needed for this branch. First Interstate Bank wanted to ensure, although not obligated to adhere to historic preservation standards, the new building would blend in with the historic feel of neighboring buildings. After numerous meetings with the local Historic Preservation Board, a proposed plan and building were approved for construction. The bank held some unique architectural elements that were repurposed to other buildings in Livingston, including two vault doors, windows, millwork, and numerous pieces of artwork. A prized J.K. Ralston painting was stored in Bozeman during construction and now prominently hangs above the teller area.
