Rocky Mount Central City Historic District
Contributing Building - Rocky Mount Central City Historic District - National Register of Historic Places
H. W. Simpson of New Bern designed this three-story brick commercial building for Planters Bank Corporation. The bank was still operating out of this building in 1980, making it Rocky Mount’s oldest bank in continuous use by the same company. The building’s Classical Revival elements include granite quoins, window sills, and flat-arched window lintels; fluted pilasters flanking the first-story entrances and some window bays; and a primary entrance surround with fluted pilasters surmounted by panels with an urn motif.
