The National Farmers' Bank of Owatonna, Minnesota is a bank building designed by Louis Sullivan with decorative elements by George Elmslie.
It was built in 1908, and was the first of Sullivan's "jewel boxes".

The Peoples Savings Bank, located at 101 3rd Avenue, SW, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was designed by Louis Sullivan.
It was built in 1911 and has been listed on the

he Farmers and Merchants Union Bank in Columbus, Wisconsin, also known as Farmers' and Merchants' Union Bank, is the last of eight "jewel box"
banks designed by
Louis Sullivan, and the next to last of those being constructed,_Wisconsin)

erchants' National Bank (1914) building is located at 833 Fourth Avenue in Grinnell, Iowa. It is one of a series of small banks designed by Louis Sullivan in the Midwest between 1909 and 1919. All of the banks are built of brick and for this structure he employed various shades of brick, ranging in color from blue-black to golden brown, giving it an overall reddish brown appearance. It was declared aNational Historic Landmark in 1976

he Home Building Association Bank (or Home Building Association Company) is a historic building located at 6 West Main Street in Newark, Ohio,
and was designed by noted
Chicago architectLouis Sullivan. It was one of three banks designed by Sullivan in 1914,
the other two being in
Grinnell, Iowa and in West Lafayette, Indiana.
For this project the architect was given a narrow lot but made the building larger by making it two stories high, something that he did not typically do in his banks.

The Purdue State Bank Building is a historic structure in West Lafayette, Indiana, United States designed by American architect
and Frank Lloyd Wright mentor Louis Sullivan. Completed in 1914, the bank is the smallest and least expensive of Sullivan's "Jewel Boxes,
" a series of Midwestern banks designed in the
modern style at the end of his career.

Although it was not designed as a bank, and has never served as such, the building is nonetheless considered to be one of Sullivan's "Jewel Boxes,
" a series of banks designed and built in the Midwest between 1909 and 1919. As in the other "Jewel Boxes," Sullivan included many windows,
both on the street side and in the skylight that allowed a great deal of natural light inside.
The simple massing of this small, rectangular building with its clearly defined structure makes it typical of Sullivan's later work.
The same massing, and similar detailing,
particularly the entrance had been used by Sullivan's former associates
Purcell & Elmslie in their slightly larger Exchange State Bank in Grand Meadow, Minnesota in 1910 and it is possible that this design influenced Sullivan. (Brooks) Sullivan was assisted in the design by his draftsman, Parker Berry, who drew the perspectives.

he People's Federal Savings and Loan Association in Sidney is an early-modern building in western Ohio, designed by Chicago architect Louis Sullivan,
the mentor of
Frank Lloyd Wright. It was designed and built in 1917 for use by Peoples Federal Savings and Loan Association,
which still operates out of it. It is one of a handful of banks designed by Sullivan between 1908 and 1919 for small communities in the central United States.
The building is a
National Historic Landmark.
