The first San Juan County Bank was originally across the street in 1893, but moved to this majestic building when it was constructed in 1907, boasting a "burglar-proof vault with a burglar-proof safe." The bank's first president was J.A. Gould of Seattle, whose son, Gene, was the bank's first cashier (and its youngest, at age 19). He was later known for being the youngest bank president in the United States (at age 29), and became the town's first mayor. The building still has much of its historic wood interior, where real estate agents at Coldwell Banker have had their fingers on the pulse of island real estate for over 50 years. [more...]
