The Bank of Leiper's Fork was organized in 1911 with a capital stock of $10,000. Bank officials included President Bennett Hunter, Vice President P.O. Hassell and Cashier W.L. Pinkerton. Board members in 1932 included M.A. Meacham, J.C. Green, J.W. Sullivan, John Locke, H.L. Green, H.M. Cotton, G.A. Gore, and W.H. Bizwell. The bank closed on November 26, 1932 due to unprofitable returns, without loss to depositors or stockholders.

Kelley and Carl McMillan and service stations operated by Fulton Stutts, Fred Conner, Herbert Furlough, Raymond Earl Howell, Albert Lee Ford, George “Buster” Pewitt and Ricky Binkley.
