2018.021.059 This photograph shows the east side of Decatur Street in Kellerton, Iowa. The Kellteron State Bank, located on the street corner, sold out to the Mount Ayr State Bank in 1931. The Mount Ayr bank used this building as a branch office for the next few years. Today, the old bank building serves as an apartment building.
