Buena Vista Town Hall (Bank of Buena Vista)

-A A +A
Bank of Buena Vista
1883. 210 E. Main St. (northwest corner of Railroad Ave.)

Double entry doors grace the corner entrance of this two-story brick Italianate building with carved stone trim. The corner entrance is advertised by a pediment rising above the bracketed metal cornice. After the Great Depression closed the bank, it became a welfare center for distributing food and clothing before being reborn as the town hall, still with two original walk-in safes.
