Town Bank with Ironic Name

It's not open! The sign is still there and it's not covered. Tightwad has a Dollar General now, and not much else.

Tightwad Bank

Tightwad Bank is closed. The saloon is closed. In fact, the only thing the Tightwads have left is a church.

[Brenda Ingwald, 07/14/2015]

Town-with-Funny-Name attractions must never obscure or destroy their funny name signs. You'd think this would be obvious. Brenda adds that the bank "sign was covered and looked to be coming down."

Town Bank with Ironic Name

Tightwad is a unique little place with a bank and a cafe. The Tightwad Cafe does not take credit cards...they don't want to pay the fees. The bank has a website!
