The origins of the historic 21c Museum Hotel Lexington by MGallery date back to the early 1900s, when the preeminent Fayette National Bank constructed for itself a grand headquarters in downtown Lexington. Founded in 1870, the Fayette National Bank had emerged as a dominant financial institution in central Kentucky by the beginning of the twentieth century. Yearning for a place to do business that could properly reflect its prestigious reputation, the company decided to demolish its original bank for a more modern one. The Fayette National Bank subsequently hired the illustrious, New York-based architectural firm, McKim, Mead & White, to oversee its ambitious construction project. Highly-regarded for its distinguished portfolio, McKim, Mead & White would soon add another feather to its cap when it began designing the new Fayette National Bank Building. Using a stunning array of Beaux-Arts Classical, Imperial Roman, French Renaissance, and Baroque design elements, the skyscraper was an architectural masterpiece upon its completion in 1914.
