If you’re wondering how the “Rhineland” name was chosen, the original bank building was in the town of Rhineland, located in the Missouri Rhineland. In the 1800s, German settlers noted similarities in soil and topography to the wine-growing area around the Rhine River in Germany and thought Rhineland would be an appropriate name. I was surprised to learn that Missouri was the second-largest wine-producing state in 1920, with both German and Italian vineyards dotting the banks of the Missouri River. Unfortunately, Prohibition destroyed Missouri’s wine industry.
