Marion Bank and Trust


Marion Bank & Trust now has a branch in Selma and is one of two new independently owned banks here. Marion is a small town about 25 miles away and home to Judson College (Baptist), Marion Military Institute and numerous antebellum homes.

This building is on property that used to be occupied by Bar D Outfit, a western wear store. That building, however, was torn down. Behind the bank is the Alabama Gas Company, also fairly new.

Funny that this wasn't originally a bank. . .It resembles one that they built in our area a few years ago.

Glad you didn't get this awful weather. I'm SICK of it!

HI Chris, Oops! I wasn't very clear about the building. The bank is a brand-new building, but years ago, another building had the western-wear store. That one was torn down.

Hope you see spring very soon!
It has been cold here but no icy, snowy stuff.
