Old State Bank

As Alabama’s oldest standing bank building, the Old Bank preserves an important part of local and state history. Both yesterday and today, it is a symbol of ambition and the will to prosper. Unique features of the Old Bank include a first floor banking lobby complete with the original walk-in vault and a replica of the teller’s cages. The second floor apartment area is furnished with antiques from the 1830’s, and gives a glimpse into life in the early Tennessee Valley.   A period-appropriate courtyard is also being developed following the foundations of the original landscape. The Old Bank is located in the quaint Bank Street shopping district, serves as the boundary for the historic Old Decatur residential neighborhood, and is easily accessible to the Decatur Riverwalk. The Old Bank is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Bank is open for tours Monday-Friday 9:30 a.m.-noon and 1-4:30 p.m.
