Bank Purchases Lot for New Building in 1919


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 11/27/1919.

A deal was closed last week whereby the Calhoun County Bank became the owner of the Main street lot owned by Ralph W. Bennett, of Akron, Ohio, being situate between the lots of the Peoples Bank and George W. Hamilton, and which was occupied at the time of the June fire by Deem & Price, confectioners.  The lot is 34 feet wide and --- feet deep and is said to have brought a purchase price of $2,650.

It is reported that the Bank will build a handsome banking house on the lot in the near future which will, of course, be of fireproof construction and up to date and modern in every particular.

This is considered one of the most valuable and desirable locations in town and the bank is to be congratulated in securing it.  This step in building is in line with the great wave of progress which is sweeping Grantsville.

On with the Bank.
