A few words on the history of the Peoples Deposit Bank, from 1930, are here.
|There were two Burlington Banks. Boone County Deposit Bank began in August, 1885; there's a pic above. Peoples Deposit began November 5, 1905, in the Jefferson Street building above. The building now across from the old court house, identified above as Peoples Deposit and as Boone County Deposit, was built by the Boone County Bank, in 1925. The Boone County Deposit Bank sold all of it's assets, including the building, to Peoples, in January, 1927. Peoples sold to Huntington. Huntington will sell to . . .|
And then there's this 1818 (!?!) bank note from Burlington.
