In 1923 Security State Bank moved to its elegant new Georgian Revival-style building at the corner of Atwood Avenue and Winnebago Street. Several banks later, we welcome Monona State Bank to the neighborhood. Let’s help them identify the employees in the pictures they inherited, and learn more about the original Security State Bank and Evergreen Savings & Loan and their influence on the community.
