Long Description:
Farmers & Merchants Bank, 1001 Princess Anne Street, ca. 1927-1928. The Farmers & Merchants Bank is a three-bay, 1 1/2 story structure erected in 1927-1928 and conspicuously located on one of the district's principal intersections. It ranks as Fredericksburg's finest example of the Georgian Revival, copying indetail and mass Wren's Winchester School. Constructed in brick on a stone foundation, the bank has fine stone trim including beautifully carved garlands above the windows. The building shows the strength of the Georgian style in Fredericksburg, a city noted for its early Georgian architecture.
