Property Description

Historic Hammond Bank in Ozark County, MO for Sale. This building has been completely dried in and ready for your finishing touches. Within walking distance to the Little North Fork River. Hammond, Missouri, was built shortly after 1900 on the little North Fork River in Ozark County where the ''Old Salt Road,'' crossed the stream. This road was named because it was used by freight wagons hauling salt, a vital staple in the early days. The townsite was started by Stoney Williams, John Squires, and John Grudier. A bank was located at Hammond for many years. John Squires was the first President and Ned Garner was the first cashier. Later the bank was operated by Kelly Hobbs of his wife, Nellie. The bank was transferred to Ava, Mo. in late 1940'S after it was robbed by a lone bandit while Mr. Johnson was alone in the bank. The robber was never apprehended as it was 10 miles to the nearest telephone at that time, and he tied up Mr. Johnson resulting in the robber getting a head start on law enforcement. Fred Wright used the bank building for a grocery store. The Historic Hammond Bank is near the Hammond Mill and the Little North Fork River. - 'White River Valley Historical Quarterly'
