These days the “Old Bank” is just a boarded up building (though in 2012 several murals were added to make it look a bit nicer), but back in the 1920s it was the pride of the town. Local legend has it that a member of the Ashley Gang (a notorious group of bank robbers) was buried in the old safe in the back. Some locals swear they get eerie feelings when walking past the place.
