The Bank of College Grove in College Grove, Tennessee, opened in a frame building in 1911, and the building was significantly remodelled in 1927, with the exterior gaining a brick veneer and Doric pilasters. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]

The bank had assets of $27,000 at the end of its first year, and was a successful venture for the next two decades. Unlike several other Williamson County banks in rural areas, such as Bank of Nolensville, Thompson Station Bank, and a bank at Leiper's Fork, the College Grove bank then survived the Great Depression, and continued in operation at this location until 1965, when it moved to a building next door.[3]

The property was listed on the National Register as part of a 1988 study of Williamson County historical resources.[2]
