• From money to ministry

    A Bagdad building that has housed a bank for nearly a century has now changed its focus from money to ministry.

    The red brick building that has been a landmark in Bagdad since it was built in 1918 sits just across the street from the B&N Food Mart on Elmburg Road and has always housed a bank – first the People’s Bank of Bagdad, then Republic Bank and most recently Citizens Union Bank.

    But when CUB decided to close its Bagdad branch in February, bank officials recognized the importance of the building to the community.
