"Hale's first major local deisgn was for the facade of the Wyoming National Bank. Installed in September of 1873, the four story facade was divided into three bays. Each bay was designed in an individualistic fashion and contains different numbers of window openings. This encyclopedia of architectural style was probably use by Hale to advertise his talents."
