Last night I did a facebook chat with my uncle, who lives in Jefferson, TN. Upon being reminded of that, I asked him how close Dandrige was to Jefferson, and he said about 7 miles, then wanted to know Hy i was curious. I told him I collect obsolete notes from TN and had some from the Bank of Jefferson in Dandridge. He said he knows the place very well, and that the bank is still there. Next time I go to TN I'll swing by Dandridge and take some photos.

I have found Google maps (earth) quite useful in snooping around a town. Here are a couple of pictures of the First National Bank of Kenmore that I took just "driving" around with Google. Not the greatest quality but cheaper than going there.

Great idea. I went into Google Earth and looked up Dandridge, TN. Apparently there isn't much worth seeing there. No stret-level views, and only a smattering of user-provided images... none of the banks.

Still, I like the thought. I'll poke around and see what other banks we might be able to travel to virtually.
