To commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the incorporation of the City of Banks, the Banks Historical Society released a book on the town’s history, titled “Banks: A Town on the Move.”

A slender tome of just over 50 pages, the book starts with a history of the Atfalati people who lived in the region, moves into the origins of the Wilkes and Greenville communities, precursors to what would become Banks, and then, page by page, walks a reader through the cultural and historical highlights of the region, documenting influential families . . .
