Re: Bank of Brandywine
I have information about it - I'd have to dig it up - it's a copy of the original charter or something like that. It's my understanding that it didn't really close. It changed hands (a few times) and a new building was built. It's now SunTrust, but I understand they may move soon. I would love a photo if you can scan & send it as an attachment. My address is: email@example.com. It had a porch? What I've been told is the original bank is a small building with no porch - maybe there was one before that, but sometimes porches are removed.
: My grandfather, Herman Badenhoop founded the
: Southern Maryland German-American Bank (the
: Bank of Brandywine). I know it later merged
: with another bank and eventually the
: Brandywine bank closed. I have a photo of
: the original building (my mother and her
: father on the porch). We've tried to locate
: that building but couldn't find it. Does
: anyone know when it started and what
: happened to it?
