“Dougherty Bank Moves to Pleasant Hill Village”
Pleasant Hill Village - In 1985, United Bank & Trust Company built a new office in Dougherty. The former bank building in Dougherty had a beautiful ornate oak teller line dating from the early 1900’s, complete with marble baseboards and frosted etched glass. The vault in the original bank featured an alarm which sounded a loud exterior horn and discharged tear gas within the vault if a robbery was attempted. In order to preserve the heritage of this bank, the antique teller line was donated by United Bank & Trust Company to the Franklin County Fair and the Franklin County Historical Society, to furnish the bank in Pleasant Hill Village.
