First Bank Building, Knoxville

First Bank Building, Knoxville

The First Bank Building was constructed in the mid-1920s and, over the years, has housed offices of dozens of banks, physicians, and various financial and architectural firms.

The main facade of the building, overlooking Market Street, consists of three arched openings, with the north opening leading to the general lobby, the south leading to the bank lobby, and the middle opening containing a window. The bank lobby is the most elaborate interior room, consisting of arched ceilings and a second-story mezzanine with a balustrade. The general lobby contains marble floors and bronze-plated elevator doors. Much of the building's interior was extensively remodeled in the early 1970s.

In 1988, the First Bank Building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its architecture and role in Knoxville's commercial history.
