Banks Reviews

2 reviews
Banks is a great little town close to Brundidge, AL and Troy, AL. There are a lot of nice people and families that live here. It has a middle and primary school, a town hall, a few churches, a local store/gas station, a post office, etc. It's just basically your typical small town.
Review Banks
The township of Banks, AL is the heart of small town living. It is a place where the school actually cares for the students and the whole town is friendly.
