Beverly in Randolph County, West Virginia — The American South (Appalachia)
For many years the Beverly Bank was the only bank in the community. It closed during the Banking Holiday of March 1933.
This building was built soon after the Bank was founded, attached to the courthouse in the lot between the courthouse and the street.
The Bank Building is rectangular one-story building of glazed white brick in Neoclassical Revival style, which was popular then for commercial buildings. The arched entryway is a gable pediment flanked by brick pilasters at an angle to the building. A second gable pediment on the side proclaims BANK on a metal panel. The original windows had three parts, with stained glass arched panels above.
Erected by Staunton Parkersburg Turnpike and Historic Beverly, W.Va.
