Construction is busy on the corner of Chapman Hwy. and Hwy 411 as Sevier County Bank broke ground last week on what will be a new 5000 plus square foot branch.
After receiving approval through the planning commission Sevier County Bank President R.B. Summitt II told the Seymour Herald the construction should last around nine months.
“We will be taking down the old building and replacing it with a one-level full service banking office,” stated Summitt. “We are doing everything we can not to inconvenience our customers and the bank will not be closed at any point.”
To accomplish this the construction is taking place behind the existing bank and the front will be used for additional parking. “This will give our customers more front parking for people wanting to walk in,” stated Summitt who says they will be incorporating some of the look of the new main branch in Sevierville into the design. “We will have the peaked roof and keep the warmth and comfort of the existing facility while adding to Seymour’s landscape in a positive fashion.”... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
