First National Bank Building, 1910, Vidalia

W. D. Donovan, the first president of the First National Bank, built this structure using the design of Ivey P. Crutchfield. By the late 1920s or early 1930s, First National moved to a different location and this served as Darby Bank for a time.

    I remember how much destruction the vibration of the trains caused to the stairs of this building. That renovation is going to be expensive. Is it finished? Would love to tour it.

    I believe I have one of the original money bags from this bank. I’m going to list in on eBay in hopes someone associated with the restoration will see it.

      This building has been purchased and in the process of restoring. It is beautiful and amazing building. It needs a historical marker.
