First National Bank

Waverly, Virginia 

Like many small towns, Waverly suffered a disastrous fire in 1904 that destroyed most of the wood-frame buildings in the commercial district. Waverly would rebuild in brick. The well preserved Classical facade of the First Nation Bank, built in 1916, is an architectural gem. Most of the brick buildings that formed Waverly's rebuilt street-front are still standing.
