Chilton's Handsome Bank Building

Through the courtesy of The Milwaukee Journal, The Times has been enabled to furnish its readers with a cut of the Chilton National Bank building now in course of erection. The building will be the most substantial and handsome building in the city. Its estimated cost is $7,000. The materials used are Portage Entry red sandstone and hydraulic-pressed brick. The interior arrangement will be a general banking room in front, finished in red birch with mosaic tile floor. Back of the banking-room is the directors' room, also finished in red birch, and on the side of this is the vault. In the rear is a coat room and the hall, with stairs leading to the second floor, which is laid out for office rooms, all finished in Southern pine. The building which is the design of the Green bay architect, H.A. Foeller, will be finished about Jan. 1, 1902, and will serve as the home of the newly organized Chilton National bank, of which Julius Feind, of Chilton, is president, Michael Joannes, of Green Bay, vice-president and William J. Paulsen, cashier. The directors are Messrs. Julius Feind, M. Joannes, E.W. Paulsen, R.F. Connell, Andrew Noll, Wm. N. Knauf and W.P. Wagner. It is the intention to erect in the spring a new hotel alongside of the bank on the site of the present Chilton House which the cut shows.

Business men who are interested in the new hotel say that the same will be built by a stock company and that most of the stock has already been subscribed.
