The Farmers Bank, located in Clintonville, Kentucky, was established by William F. Heathman in 1903.1

The modest one-story building, facing Kentucky Route 57, features a pretentious parapet across the top, displaying the name of the building in Art Nouveau lettering. In 1924, the bank was robbed in a violent attempted robbery that left one dead.1 The teller, Mr. Buchanan, was killed during the saga. The business closed shortly after and the building became a grocery store for numerous years.
