One of the oldest bank buildings in the United States, the Farmers Bank of Petersburg was built in 1817. During the Siege of Petersburg, the building was hit by three shell fragments, and went bankrupt in 1865 after investing in Confederate bonds. A tour includes the original vault room and safe, printing press, teller windows, and other artifacts.

Several movies have been filmed in and around this building including Turn, Lincoln and Harriet.
