Inscription.  In 1817, a bank building was erected on this corner as a short-lived branch of The Bank of Tennessee. It was known as “the old bank building”, even when occupied by mercantile stores. The present building, constructed in 1899 for the Bank of Winchester, provided lodge rooms on the third floor and office space for lawyers on the second floor. World War II veterans H. H. Earle and T. H. Burt opened a barbershop in the basement in 1946. From 1910 to 1984, Farmer's Bank was a local landmark here and the tallest building downtown.
