“Here is a picture of the Barnett Banks. The old one in the foreground was on Laura and Forsyth Streets. The other building still stands. 1950.” LS

The bank building in the foreground located on West Forsyth Street at the intersection with Laura Street started as the Bank of Jacksonville in 1877. It was then renamed The National Bank of Jacksonville. The bank was renamed The Barnett Bank in the early 1900’s after the banks founder William Boyd Barnett. The new Barnett Bank building on Adams and Laura Streets behind it was built in 1926.
