65 Years Ago June 1953
Thomas. H. Bowlus, president of the Allen County State Bank, says he will build a new bank building at the west corner of the intersection of South Street and Madison Avenue rather than remodel the present building. The two buildings now on the site will be razed. While the construction is under way, the bank will do business in the building on the southwest corner of Washington and Madison. Bowlus noted that the building had formerly been used as a bank and he believes it will be satisfactory.
