The Second National Bank was established in Richmond in 1872.  It's first officers were Andrew F. Scott, president; John B. Dougan, cashier, and James Thomas, treasurer.  You can tour Andrew Scott's home, now owned by the Wayne County Historical Museum.

In 1956, the Second National Bank moved into a new building (color photo above) on the northeast  corner of Main & 8th Streets.

Second National Bank was sold to First National Cincinnati Corporation in 1986.  Their name was officially changed to Star Bank in July of 1988.  The corporation has had two additional name changes, to Firstar in February of 1999 and following a merger between US Bankcorp and Firstar, to US Bank in May of 2002.
