Note:
In 1914 a notice in the Manufacturers' Record stated that P. Thornton Marye had designed the First National Bank in Hickory, to be built with granite and terra cotta; the contractor was to be J. A. Jones. The Beaux-Arts classical bank depicted in postcards is believed to be Marye's design; it was replaced by an Art Deco building in 1941, which still stands.
