EVERSMAN, WOOD & ENGBRING, a well-known private banking firm of Effingham, was established in this place in September, 1881, and has now been uninterruptedly in successful business for nearly twelve years. The proprietors are Dr. Henry Eversman, Hon. Benson Wood, Virgil Wood, lawyers, William H. Engbring and Mrs. Catharine Engbring, all citizens of Effingham, of high business standing and well-known personal responsibility. Dr. Henry Eversman has served as cashier of the bank since its opening, and W. H. Engbring as his assistant.

This bank has done a safe and profitable business from the start, and its deposits have steadily increased since its doors were first opened. Its management has been conservative, and it has been a settled policy of its proprietors not to engage in any speculative business whereby the security of their patrons might possibly be jeopardized. Consequently it has grown in favor, and enjoys the fullest confidence of its numerous patrons, while it has won a foremost place among the best financial institutions in southern Illinois.
