The Bank (First National Bank of Pearisburg)

-A A +A
First National Bank of Pearisburg
1906. 101 N. Main St.

This rock-faced, concrete-block former bank draws on Romanesque Revival features to create a formidable and secure exterior. The facade is defined by a monumental recessed arch, which embraces two smaller arches, one encompassing the entrance and the other a window. A balustrade runs along the side wall. In 1959 the bank relocated and the building stood empty until it was converted into a restaurant in 2005.
