Behind this sign for the Industrial Valley Bank is the old State Farm office building. It was located at the corner Sproul and State roads. A staff of 154 people were employed at the office when it opened on June 11, 1956. In 1985, the company moved to Concordville. The site now is home to the Moog Components Group.
