The Phipps - Wallace store building was constructed in 1888.

The building housed a few different businesses between 1888 and 1921, when the building was purchased by the Security National Bank. During the 1920s, the Security National Bank contracted with another St. Louis architectural firm, Klipstein & Rathmann, to remodel the lower two stories replacing the old storefront with a monumental classical style limestone front that the bank considered more appropriate for its image. Despite the historic alteration, the building remains a good representative of the Richardsonian Romanesque style. It is also significant because it displays the work of two well-known St. Louis architectural firms and is the last remaining example of a downtown St. Louis building designed by Rosenheim.


The quality of the Classical Revival alteration undertaken by Security National Bank during the 1920s and the bank's long occupancy prevented the building from suffering the modernized storefront that has inflicted so many other commercial buildings in downtown St. Louis. The result is a single building that clearly represents two distinctly different styles and the works of two prolific St. Louis architectural offices. A classic example of Richardson-inspired Romanesque is represented on the upper levels and a bold 1920s Classical Revival commercial front on the lower stories.
