Wanda Dillon had her eye on a stone 1881 bank in Bramwell, W.V., for decades. Once known as the richest bank per-capita in the United States, the building itself is a treasure.
The interior includes intricate hand carved woodwork, mahogany paneling, Italian marble and the original vault. Dillon preserved the features of the historic structure while adapting it as her home.
