The Greenwood bank is receiving a thorough overhauling. Last week the outside was painted and trimmed and this week the inside walls are being covered with a bright, but richly colored paper. Altogether it presents a neat and tidy appearance, and speaks will for the good taste of Cashier McShane and the bank management.
From The Greenwood Commonwealth, May 12, 1899
The handsome building now occupied by the Bank of Greenwood, which will be merged into the First National on May 1, will in the meantime undergo substantial repairs.
A new tile floor will be laid and the present handsome fixtures will be mounted on a base of expensive marble, which will give the room an air of substantial elegance unsurpassed in beauty of design and perfection of finish.
A new concrete walk will be laid in front of the building and other improvements are in contemplation which, when completed, will make the home of the First National one of the handsomest bank buildings in the State.
From The Commonwealth, March 5, 1904
All arrangements have been made for the opening of the First National Bank of Greenwood Monday morning, May 2. The old Bank of Greenwood will consequently pass out of existence with the closing of business this afternoon.
A great deal of labor has necessarily been involved in the closing up of the old books and the transfer of the business and the entire working force of the bank has been kept busy for the past several days.
The First Nation Bank of Greenwood will start out with flattering prospects for a most successful career. The old Bank of Greenwood enjoyed a fine business, and to this will be added the prestige of increased capital and added security of government supervision.
The COMMONWEALTH extends congratulations to the offices and directors of the First National and wishes it the success which it is sure to achieve.
From the Greenwood Commonwealth, April 30, 1904
The two-story building owned and operated by the First National Bank of Greenwood, was sold yesterday to Mr. R. C. McBee of this city. The consideration was $12,500.00.
Mr. McBee will continue to rent the building and it will be occupied by the First National Bank until completion of the bank's new home on Howard Street.
