The Farmers State Bank is significant under Criterion A at the local level. It represents importance not necessarily for contributions to the local commerce and economy of the small town of Loomis and its trade area during its operations from 1900-1929, but as a significant and well-documented representative of a pattern of events relating to the Nebraska banking system. Under Criterion C, the building is significant at the local level as an excellent example of the small Nebraska bank buildings of the early twentieth-century property type, for its Neo-Classical design, and for its exceptionally well preserved interior.
