“Fire, Mob & Burglar Proof”
Hansell Safe - This rare money vault was originally located in the Hansell office of United Bank & Trust Company and is now on display in the Hampton location. Weighing over three tons, the vault was designed to be freestanding, whereas most banks built vaults inside thick walls. It has three doors, each with a separate combination. The middle door is one foot thick and is also protected by a time lock. Despite the vault’s large size and solid steel construction, the interior compartment is only about eighteen inches in diameter. Victor Safe Company made the safe in the early 1900’s, and their slogan “Fire, Mob, and Burglar Proof,” appears on the sides of the vault.
