This two-storey brick building at Hartney, in the Municipality of Grassland, was constructed in 1914 for the Merchants Bank of Canada. It became a branch of the Bank of Montreal when, in 1922, the two banks merged. The branch closed in July 2000 and the building is now being used as a private residence.
