Chuckey TN Old Bank Building

bank

This 1920 building (36.212198, -82.687186)  was originally a bank.  It sits on Chuckey Pike where it crosses the railroad tracks.  The original train depot, now in Jonesborough, was located just across the tracks.  According to a local, the rumor was that the owners of the bank faked a robbery and absconded with the institution’s accumulated wealth.  Comments welcome on this (and any post).  It may have functioned as a post office, also.

safe

The original safe is still there, along with a bunch of stuff apparently left over from a rummage sale.

Also across the tracks from this building was once located a “birth to death” store…it had everything you’d need from birth to death (like the Big Store in Kingsport TN).  It’s totally gone now.
