Once a building for saving cash is now a building for spending it.
The bank, built in 1886 in Sturgis, is open for business as a bar, although the building is still in the process of being remodeled.
Dave Wilson, the owner and broker of Sturgis Real Estate Company, says the building, which will keep its name as a bank, will be a fully functioning bar and have food and souvenirs for sale.
Additionally, apartments are being constructed on top of the bar. Some of the units are already being lived in, but others are still being worked on and are scheduled to be available to rent in a year.
Wilson says renovating the historic building is a part of revitalizing the city. "The idea behind this is so you expand this area it makes more and more people want to come down shop spend some time down here," said Wilson.
The 'old' look of the building is being maintained, with brick exposed in the inside.
