Trader's Bank Building
Designation Date: October 13, 1989
Designation Authority: Selkirk (city)
Present Owner: privately owned

The Traders Bank Building is significant as an early financial institution that was vital to growth and development in the Selkirk area. Located in the heart of the community’s original business district, the substantial building is a physical as well as a functional landmark, with its distinctive angled corner, strategically oriented to a major street intersection, and an interior with ample space for business, professional and residential tenants. The structure’s dignified Neo-classical Revival style, typical of early twentieth-century bank architecture, is met with subtle Chicago School influences, seen in the groupings of windows in threes. Today, the building remains true to its roots as a mixed-use commercial and residential facility.
