Administrative history

The Bank of Montreal was one of five financial institutions in existence in Rossland at the turn of the twentieth century. The bank building was designed by Francis Rattenbury, and construction commenced in 1899. It marked several ‘firsts’ in Rossland’s architectural heritage, namely its foundation of locally-quarried granite and the steel reinforcing beams that lie behind the brick facing.
