- A Little History on the Bank of Perris Building Originally built in 1918 by the Stewart family, the Bank of Perris building operated as the only bank in the city of Perris in its early years. After serving as a bank, it then became a real estate office before falling into disrepair. In 2001, the building was gifted to the city of Perris in the hope that it could someday be preserved. Nine years and $500,000 later, the dream has been realized and the building will now serve as the new home of the Perris Valley Museum Historical Archives.
