This two-story brick commercial building at 117 South 8th Street, Tacoma, WA, was erected c. 1895. The North Pacific Bank Note Company moved into the space in 1919, and operated here until at least 1967. By 12/1983, the Pacific First Federal Savings Bank moved into the building.

In the early 1980s, the neighboring building at 715-17 Pacific Avenue (built 1890) was combined with that at 111-119 South 8th Street.


In 1967, architect Alan Liddle (1922-2009) worked with the Alan Roberts Construction Company on a seismic upgrade and alterations to the machinery and space inside the North Pacific Bank Note Company Building.

Architect Robert W. Evans and building contractor, Gene Freigang, worked on the early 1980s remodeling of the North Pacific Bank Note Company Building and its two neighbors at 715-17 Pacific Avenue and 111-15 South 8th Street
