|Bank of Fayette, Fayetteville, W.Va.|
This gala event celebrating the bank's new home took place on Saturday, December 15, 1923. A newspaper article commented on the bank's new building saying that it was "perhaps the handsomest and most substantial in the county." The building's second floor contained several office suites. At the time the building the opened, the law office of Ostenton and Lee occupied half of the second floor.
The National Register of Historic Places Registration Form described the exterior facade of the building as being marble but a 1923 newspaper article described the building's exterior as white terra-cotta, a type of enriched molded clay brick or block.
