First National Bank

The building was the New Jersey National Bank for a long time, then Core States Bank, and currently Sun Bank. Notice the walkway across Main Street. This was necessary to enable people to cross the dirt roads that could become very muddy during storms.

The current building, shown to the left, was built in 1926 in the neo-Georgian commercial style including the windows, the fan light over the doorway and a classic interior which was restored in 1984. This building replaced an 18th century building that originally was "The Buck Tavern House", later the Irving House.
