South Cumberland Savings Bank

A view of the South Cumberland Savings Bank building, built in 1904, from an area that was not available at the time of its construction.

Now, this is what one sees as they exit the railroad underpass that was not here when this bank was built. At that time, the then dirt road ran past the bank over the railroad tracks. Eventually, because of increased vehicle traffic in the area, and the making of hard surfaced roads, an underpass was built beneath the tracks and soon one did not have to worry about that trains as they traveled past the bank.

Now the building is being used as an automotive repair shop ( I think that they are still in business ) and the rear portion of the building is gone; only the front and sides remain as they were built. The bank building is still a visually prominent landmark known by most residents of the area.
