Independence Bank Stained Glass

On Tuesday, November 13, about 200 people gathered to celebrate the grand opening of Independence Bank in Louisville, Kentucky. Located in St. Matthews Square, just down the road from Louisville Seminary, the bank's architectural design was intended to maintain a sense of history celebrated by the St. Matthews community.

To honor that history, the building features several stained glass panels produced by Lynchburg Stained Glass. They include buildings, businesses, landmarks and other images unique to the area. Louisville Seminary's Caldwell Chapel is prominently displayed in one of the panels, which includes other seminaries and houses of worship.

Louisville Seminary President Alton B. Pollard III was among the dignitaries to take part in the November 13 ribbon-cutting ceremony. Pollard was joined by representatives of Louisville Metro Government, St. Matthews City Council, St. Matthews area businesses as well as Independence Bank itself.

"This was my first bank blessing," said Pollard with chuckle. "But I am very honored that Independence Bank thought so highly of Louisville Seminary as to include it in its artwork and invite us to participate in this celebration."
