Photographing the Old Shawneetown Bank, Built 1841 in Illinois

Photographing the Old Shawneetown Bank, Built 1841 in Illinois

Built to service a prosperous riverport town, the grand old bank was abandoned after a disastrous 1937 flood

Climb the steps of this 180 year old bank building. We will peek in the windows and learn a little bit about the bank and the town.

Walk with me as I explore this 180-year-old bank building

The building was placed into renovations in the 1970s, but those were abandoned midway. Now the building stands proud but in decline.
