Fayette County National Bank

-A A +A
1906–1907, Frank E. Davis. 101 N. Court St. (corner of Court St. and Maple Ave.)

Occupying the most prominent street corner opposite the courthouse (a favorite location for banks), this three-story structure has walls of rock-faced sandstone contained by smooth ashlar piers. The original Ionic pedimented stone frontispiece still graces the angled corner entrance. In addition to the bank, whose premises are defined by large, segmental-arched windows, the building housed a store on the first floor, law offices on the second, and a Masonic lodge on the third.
