Description

State Bank of Orlando check to Burlington Savings Bankdated January, 4th. 1905. The check was paid to the order of the State Bank of Orlando and the value received and charge was to Burlington Savings Bank of Burlington, Vermont in the sum of $300. The check was signed by Walter A Smith, who was a cashier of the State Bank of Orlando.

The bank was formed in 1893 with Louis Massey as president. In 1919, the State Bank converted into the State Bank and Trust Company and also acquired the northeast corner of Orange Avenue and Central Boulevard that year. A. G. Bentley constructed a ten-story building on that lot, designed by W. L. Stoddart in the 20th Century Commercial style with Neo-Classical elements. The building was used by the bank until it closed in 1929. In 1933, the Florida Bank at Orlando acquired the property. In 1927, the building was acquired by Orange County and served as governmental offices, including the office of the sheriff and supervisor of elections. In 2002, it housed the temporary home of Florida Atlantic Metropolitan University's Law School.
