Boat 'n Bank

The Boat 'N Bank of Kilmarnock, Virginia-based Chesapeake National Bank was the nation's first floating bank branch. A converted houseboat, the floating bank provided banking services to seafood houses on the Northern Neck of Virginia. The bank claimed at the time that it was the nation's first floating bank branch. It came after the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts director Leslie Cheek developed the Artmobile , a museum on wheels that began taking art across Virginia in 1953.
