Long Description:
"The Mead Bank was originally built in 1862 facing Union Street at the southwest corner of Jefferson and Union and is the first bank mentioned in early Waupaca history. The bank was dismantled during a major fire in the 1870's to prevent the spread of the fire. It was rebuilt around saved doors and windows. The back section of the building was added many yaers after the original strucyure was built. IN the back of the original building Mead was brutally murdered on October 7, 1882 in what is technically an unsolved murder despite eleven years of investigation and a number of trials and confessions. The bank was moved to this locationin 1899 from its original site"
