The Bank Closes.
The bank closed in 1971 due to the cost of sending out bank officers from Ballarat. Also by then people were going to Ballarat more often to do their banking.
In 2003 the old bank was relocated to its current location and restored by the Bungaree and District Historical Society.
The bank before it was renovated and moved.
