Beverly Family History Research Library (Beverly Bank)

Beverly Bank
1900. South corner of South Main and Court sts.

This diminutive but brash white brick building has more “architecture” than most buildings twice its size. Each bay is centered by a large, arched window, while pilasters separating the bays terminate high above the roofline with bracketed capitals supporting globular finials. Above the angled corner entrance, a pediment contains a panel with Beverly Bank and 1900 inscribed in raised letters. Architectural selfconfidence notwithstanding, the Beverly Bank closed during the March 1933 bank holiday. The building now serves as a regional genealogical research center.
