New Corn Belt Bank, November 1961 East and Jefferson, Downtown Bloomington

Construction of Corn Belt Bank, 1961.

Construction began on a new Corn Belt Bank home office on September 13, 1960. The Bloomington bank was moving two blocks east from its longtime home on the Courthouse Square. The new auto-centric location offered drive-through banking facilities and plenty of parking, two conveniences not available at the old location. Seen here, looking south through the framework, are long-gone Withers Library and behind that the old YMCA.

This bank building opened in October 1961. Today, it’s home to a branch office of Pittsburgh, PA-based PNC Financial Services Group, Inc.
