The Canadian Rivers Historical Museum is housed in a unique 1903 building that was built as the Bank of Commerce, the oldest bank in Blaine County. It later became known as the American State Bank, but failed during the Great Depression. Today, the Gillespie Building housing the museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
