National Register of Historic Places in Napa County
The First National Bank is one of few Classical Revival buildings in the town of Napa and the one that most completely represents the style.
The First National Bank had been operating in Napa for more than fifty years when it opened its new headquarters in 1917. The Classical Revival style was the fashionable choice for bank buildings. With its classical detailing and siding that emulated marble, the building gave customers a sense of security and long tradition.
The architect is unknown.
