THE OLD STATE BANK IN DECATUR, ALABAMA
Built in 1833 as one of three branches of the Alabama state bank, today it is a museum that has been restored to reflect its original purpose and is free to the public.
There is evidence today of the bank's Union occupation, such as graffiti on by a Union soldier left on one of the columns, cannon ball damage to another, and a bullet in a brick.
What might surprise many is that the head cashier of the bank had an apartment located on the second floor of the bank.
The original walk-in vault and tellers' cage give visitors a glimpse into Alabama's banking past.
