“Classic Prairie Architecture from a 100 Years Ago”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

This is a must-see; and it's free. Go inside and marvel at the origninal building, then appreciate how the recent addition has complemented its classic style. Construction of the original building was delayed because its design was not in keeping with that of the other businesses in Winona.

“Frank Lloyd Wright designed bank”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

We visited on Friday, June 7, 2013. There is easy on-street parking. The building was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and 90% of the original architecture, lighting and furnishings remain. The stained glass is magnificent! You can just walk right in and enjoy the space with no one to bother you. I guess the bankers are used to tourists.

“Small town bank, great service”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

I have all my accounts at Merchants. They have a arrangement with all Kwik Trips so that you can get money from their ATMs without any service charges. Still have a person answer their phones when you call. They continue to invest in small town USA

“A Frank Lloyd Wright original!!”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

If you like Frank Lloyd Wright this is worth pulling into Winona to see. Beautifully preserved building that still functions as it was originally designed...a bank.
