YESTERYEAR: National City Bank by Pat Sides

The date was December 1962, and the thriving bank was expanding to create more space for its loan departments. National City could trace its roots back to at least 1850, when it opened as the Canal Bank on Water Street (now Riverside Drive). In 1866, the bank moved to Main Street, eventually ending up at Third and Main. Over its long history, Canal Bank underwent several names changes: First National Bank, City National Bank, Old National Bank, and in 2000, Integra Bank. The institution closed in 2011.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img
