Description

The Sun First National Bank of Orlando, located at 190 South Orange Avenue in Downtown Orlando, Florida, in 2001. In 1911, Seth Woodruff founded the People's National Bank and renamed it the First National Bank in 1920. In 1926, the bank announced plans to construct a building at the northwest corner of Orange Avenue and Church Street. The building was designed by Howard M. Reynolds in the Art Deco style. The bank opened for business in 1930, closed briefly, and then reopened in 1934 with F. L. Morse as its president. In 1960, the bank moved across the street and, in 1973, it was renamed the Sun First National Bank. Since then, the bank has merged with several other banking corporations.
