Our building is located at 114 High Street and is across from the Waterford Post Office. It is in the historic district.
The two-story building with a marble front at 114 High Street was once the Ensworth National Bank. It was in business from 1911 until 1940 when it was absorbed by The First National Bank. Many of our clients banked in our building once upon a time and one of them was even an employee. Currency notes were issued by thousands of small banks until 1935 and some of the rare ones are very valuable. We haven’t yet seen any from “our” bank, but maybe we will get lucky some day. We DO still have a bank vault though!
