Virginia is for Lovers Logo

To Petersburg for LINCOLN!

Created by: Casey

Going to spend a couple days in Petersburg eating where the cast and crew ate and seeing the filming locations. Major scenes were shot on the streets and buildings received faux facades. Those are the types of things you wish would stick around for movie hounds like us. I hope there's something playing at Sycamore Rouge to round out the evening.

    The Farmer's Bank was incorporated in 1812 and opened its Petersburg branch in 1817. The three-story Federal structure became a frequent gathering place for the Petersburg Community. The first floor of the building held the banking are with the original vault. Clerks cashed checks and made exchanges from the other side of the long counter. In the early nineteenth century, the executive officer of the bank and his family lived on the upper floors of the bank. The rooms were well-appointed with intricately decorated mantels and doorways. A family kitchen has been reconstructed on its original site. The bank continued to operate through the Civil War. In 1866 the General Assembly passed an act that affected all state banks and forced the Farmers' Bank to liquidate its assets. The Bank became a private residence and passed through many hands before being conveyed to Preservation Virginia in 1960.


    Today it is one of the few bank museums in the United States and is operated by the City of Petersburg as the Petersburg Visitor’s Center.
