I was her to get tourist information, and I got a tour. It is a small place, but the tour guide gave a great tour. It is very short so you do not have to spend your entire day here.

This is not a must see or anything but it was cool to see how the bank operates in the early 1800's. Would recommend if you are in the area. The woman who gave the tour was very pleasant and knowledgeable.

Very helpful!! Lady there knew everything you could want to know about Petersburg. One thing I learned while there was all restaurants in downtown Petersburg are private owners not franchises, so you really get a true taste of Petersburg!

Even if just stopping for a bathroom break on your way south on I-95, you'll get a quick super interesting tour of the oldest bank building in Virginia. There's a vault with an original safe and real money from pre-war Virginia and Confederate bills. The...More
