Description

The Orlando SouthTrust Bank, located at 135 West Central Boulevard in Downtown Orlando, Florida, in 2002. In 1887, the SouthTrust Corporation was founded as Birmingham Trust and Savings Company in Birmingham, Alabama. The bank was renamed the Birmingham Trust National Bank in 1946, when it received a charter to become a national bank. In 1972, the bank combined with three other Alabama banks as the Alabama Financial Group, Inc. Two years later, the company was renamed the Southern Bancorporation of Alabama and continued to buy banks throughout the state. The bank's name was changed to SouthTrust Corporation in 1981 and purchased the Central Bank of South Daytona Beach in Florida,which was its first purchase outside of Alabama. SouthTrust became one of the largest banks in the South in the 1990s. On June 21, 2004, SouthTrust merged with the Wachovia Corporation.
