About this Exploration:
Open Saturday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. or go across the street to Pipers Fine Foods and ask Mary Piper to open the shop! You will want her to tell you the story of the bank robbery back in the 1930s.
This 1886 bank is full of gifts and decorator items, many from local craftsmen. In the elegant style of the 1880s, see the teller cages, woodwork, tile floors, and that big safe near the front window. It was placed there after the bank robbery so that employees couldn't be locked in the vault.
