On Feb. 4, Resource Bank opened a temporary banking facility at 601 E. Comanche Ave., Shabbona, at the construction site of the future permanent branch. This location will offer more services such as drive-up window, night drop, walk-in client advisers and lobby tellers. A 24-hour ATM will be available to clients at 308 E. Comanche Ave. in front of the Ken Spears building.
“It’s been wonderful getting to know our neighbors in this community and we’re excited to now offer all the services they need,” Michelle Janco, branch manager, said in a news release.
The new branch has been designed by David Hagney of Hagney Architects, LLC of Rockford. The blueprints of the new bank will incorporate the historic Quilhot one-room schoolhouse built in 1856, which has been owned by the Mullins family of Shabbona. The schoolhouse will be restored and integrated with the bank to provide a public space for use by the entire community.
The construction of the building is by Shepard Construction of DeKalb.
