Enjoyed learning a bit more about the history of the Merchants bank from a manager who spontaneously showed up to give us a tour. Who would have thought a bank could be this interesting?

For tourists, it might be worth walking in to the lobby of this bank for 10-15 minutes to view the Tiffany-style stained glass windows.

This is true gem. Outside, textbook. Inside, the windows are truly spectacular. The remodeling and additions are spot on.

The stained glass and craftsman style of the building is a sight to behold. It is a wonderful place to bank as well. The staff is friendly and very personable. One always feels at home.

I've been with Merchants for over five years. Their staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. I've never felt taken advantage of. I'll never switch banks.
