It had no windows on the lower walls close to the street and later, a small skyscraper was added to the top. It was created to serve the states of Montana, North and South Dakota, Minnesota, and the northern parts of Wisconsin and Michigan.

Today the Federal Reserve is housed in three buildings that are housed a few blocks away from each other.
