Stop in and visit us at the Visitors Center, located in a historic bank building in the heart of historic St. Andrews.
The Bank of St. Andrews was built in 1907, and it officially opened its doors on May 27th, 1908. After the bank closed, a multitude of other businesses popped up in its place. A police substation, a thrift shop, and a bakery were just a few of the businesses once housed here. Presently, the historic bank building now houses the Visitors Center! In 2005, the bank went under major construction to recreate what the original bank once looked like. You’ll feel like you stepped back in time when you visit this little piece of history, from the vaulted ceilings and woodwork, to the original 100-year old checks displayed on our walls! Visit us to take a tour of the building. Our always friendly staff will guide you in planning the rest of your stay in Panama City, Florida.
