Building History

The Historic Commerce Building was home to the Columbia Building & Loans starting in 1926. When the last tenant of the first floor space left in 2002, the ceiling was removed only to uncover a 100 year old chandelier. The tile floor was removed to expose 100 year old marble flooring. Above the vault you will find original marble and the archway at the entrance of the building is 100 year old granite.
