Built in 1911, the historic Barnes State Bank building was robbed twice at gunpoint. It became insolvent in 1924. The building has been home to several businesses including the U.S. Post Office. A restoration project that began in 2005 by Clarence Barker the great-grandson of one of the original founders of the bank, Clinton Hogue was re-dedicated on November 10, 2007. One of the unique features are the original pressed tin sidewalls and reproduced windows to match the originals. A truly magnificent building rich in small town history. The building also is home to the "Always Christmas Gift Shoppe."
