A little nostalgia and a long history

The building at 2 North Main has a long history. It began as the Jacobsen’s Hardware Store and Opera House in the early 1900s. In 1923, the building caught fire and sustained extensive damage. Jacobsen’s did not want to rebuild due to finances. So the small bank that was in the corner of the building bought the property and rebuilt into the Union National Bank. In the 1960s, the bank moved to a different more modern location.

2 North Main was then a USO for about ten years. After that, it sat empty for over 20 years and was then gifted to the Minot Art Association (our previous organization name).
