This famous intersection, now known as Toomers Corner was named for businessman and State Senator Sheldon Toomer who founded the Bank of Auburn here in 1907. He served 45 years as bank President and 25 years on the Auburn City Council. Toomers Corner is adjacent to Auburn University's historic Main Gate and a tradition to generations of Auburn University students who gather to celebrate the "Auburn Spirit". The Bank of Auburn building constructed in 1906 features a limestone base and original nameplate topped by a classic revival brick fa?ade that serves as the cornerstone for downtown Auburn.
