Last week, 1st Mutual Bank asked the questions, what was the original chartered name of their branch that was open here in New Martinsville 125 years ago?

This was one of the harder questions we have had. A lot of people remembered that 1st Mutual was Doolins Savings and Loan. However, to get this question correct, you had to know that the bank was originally chartered as Doolin Building & Loan Association.

Thanks to all who played!
