Bankersmith is similar to Grapetown because it ceased to exist after the disuse of the Fredericksburg & Northern Railroad. Bankersmith began as a depot on the railroad named after Temple D. “Banker” Smith.The land is on private property and the station was destroyed along with the original residences.
