New Bank Branch in Caledonia: Latest Installment in Decades of Growth for Rural Town
Vernon, Alabama is just a dozen miles from Caledonia, Mississippi, but the Bank of Vernon took 11 years to cover that distance. On June 28th, representatives and officials gathered at the ceremonial opening of the bank’s new branch in Caledonia’s primary retail area. The tiny town of 1,100 residents has been without a bank branch for 15 years, but it is growing steadily. “We’ve got some great plans for the area, and we appreciate the support of the people of Caledonia,” said Bank of Vernon CEO Andy Johnson.
