The Darius Ogden Mills Bank was one of many structures razed during the construction of Interstate 5 through Old Town Sacramento. Some other landmark buildings were the Western Hotel the Overton Building, and the original Sacramento Bee Building.

The Darius Ogden Mills Bank contributed to the Old Sacramento Historic District which is a National Historic Landmark.
