Milltown National Bank 1924 - North Main Street

Milltown to Have a National Bank

J. Burr Herbert has received word from the Treasury Department at Washington, D. C., that the application of himself and four others to organize the First National Bank of Milltown has been approved. Announcement was made in the Sunday Times several weeks ago of such a plan.

There will be a lot of red tape to go through yet before the bank is established, but it is hoped to open it in January. The incorporators are John V. L. Booraem, Dr. N. N. Forney, Christian Kuhlthau, Charles C. Richter, and J. Burr Herbert.
