The Farmers Bank Building was a 24-story, 344 foot skyscraper in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, completed in 1902. In the mid-1960s, the building was bought by Rockwell International and used as their global headquarters until 1972. A failed rehabilitation effort in the early-1990s doomed the building to demolition.
During that renovation project, a 15-story mural was created that became one of Pittsburgh's highlights for a few years. The sports mural, completed in 1992, featured Roberto Clemente, Bill Mazeroski, Jack Lambert, Mean Joe Greene and Mario Lemieux. It was featured often on network broadcasts of Pittsburgh sports events. After 95 years as part of the Pittsburgh skyline, the Farmers Bank Building was razed on May 27, 1997.
