Long Description:
This gorgeous building is listed as a contributing structure for the Los Gatos Downtown NRHP district

"First National Bank Building - 170 West Main Street

A fine example of Renaissance Revival style architecture, this tall one-story building was
constructed in 1920 and was occupied by The First National Bank of Los Gatos until 1955.
The lunettes over four windows contain bas relief sculptures of Franciscan Missions."

It was built for banker (and town historian) Clarence Hamsher. Unfortunately, no one seems to have recorded the name of the architect or artist(s).
