Our Beautiful Building


The earliest photograph of the building is this one which is estimated to be around the turn of the century.    

The building in which In Tandem is growing was built in 1895 according to official county records. Its history includes the first bank in Mitchell County and has been the home to others including the Merchant’s and Farmer’s Bank shown in this late 1930’s photograph.

It last served as the Northwestern Bank before a new building was constructed nearby. The French Broad Coop used it for a local office at one time and it has been a studio for other artists before the In Tandem revitalization of both the building and Town of Bakersville.
