There are 12 and 15 foot ceilings on the main floor. Looks like there are two operating safes in the structure. Definitely a one of a kind property.

From the Zillow listing:


Unique opportunity for a one of a kind residence in the town of Amherst. Incredible architectural detail. Originally built around 1920 as The bank of Amherst, this property also served for 50+ years as the Town Municipal offices. For the past several years it has been an art gallery with the additions of beautiful murals and frescoes throughout. There are operating 6′ x 12′ concrete safes. There is a galley type kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a recently added full bath and renovated half bath. It a perfect for a combination commercial and residential space if you desire. 12 and 15 foot ceilings on the main floor. Surely one-of-a kind.
