Record #:
The name Branch Banking and Trust Company rings well in the ears of many North Carolinians. The institution, established in 1872, had grown into one of the state's leading financial giants, spreading across eastern North Carolina from Wilson. Furthermore, it was one of the only banks that didn't go 'busted' in North Carolina when the Great Depression hit in the early 1930s.
