This article talks about the history of the Roberts Exchange Bank. It details how the first bank sat where the Seng Implement was located and at that time it faced to the east and was located on Main Street. It was destroyed in the first Roberts fire in the 1870's. Another bank was built but this time it faced to the north and was fronted on Green Street.
The Cassingham brothers were in business in Roberts for many years, with one of the two leaving town on several occasions, only to come back and join another economic enterprise or to renew the union with his brother. As was common back then, the Cassinghams dealt in paint, lubricants, patent medicines, gifts, jewelry, fans, feathers, and other inventory that led to the 1890s label of "Various and Sundry."
