Mississippi Valley Trust Company financed transportation and communication networks in the St. Louis region, and was a supporter of the St. Louis World´s Fair. It later merged with Mercantile Bank and Trust. [p.21]

The building was vacant through most of the 1930s, and was at one time housed an aircraft company; it has lately been used as a restaurant, then a medical clinic and is now an office building in its latest incarnation.
