I’m not sure when this was built, perhaps the late 1930s or early 1940s, but I believe it was built solely for use as a boarding house/tourist home. It is presently being deconstructed. Jesup once had many such “tourist homes” but by the 1960s most were replaced by modern motels. The Broadhurst Studio postcard (pictured below) likely dates to circa 1945-1950. The card notes the availability of a locked garages and boasts that it is a block away from the noise of highway traffic.

I had a nice talk with the owner of this old bank, which was built by E. J. Fuler. He showed me around the interior, which is in a bit of a mess at the moment as he is presently restoring it. It still retains the fancy tilework and marble counters. He has added a section at the rear which will house an indoor shooting range. The building will not only retain its historic integrity but intrusive renovations made in the later days of its use as a bank will be removed.
