The architect of this slender and unusually graceful 11-story skyscraper was identified as P. Thornton Marye in an article in the Raleigh News and Observer of May 11, 1914, which also noted his authorship of the Raleigh Banking and Trust Company Building and the Commercial National Bank. The Citizens National Bank was only 3 bays wide facing Fayetteville Street, but 6 bays deep along Martin Street, creating a strong feature in views facing down Fayetteville Street. It was razed in the 1960s for another bank.
