The Savings Bank of South Australia (SBSA) building was originally built as a saddlery in the 1890's. It was later converted to a shop and private residence for Mr J. Rock. The Savings Bank of South Australia purchased the entire building for £1,100 in 1909 and opened a branch in Quorn. At that time the town was an important northern regional centre.

The SBSA then became the State Bank of South Australia and BANK SA branch. Operating as a Bank the fittings and furniture then included polished cedar panelling, the bank counter was edged in brass, there was an iron foot-rail on the customers side of the counter and gas was used to light the premises.

The Bank was subsequently closed on 13th September 1997.

The SBSA building was then renovated and now provides comfortable holiday accommodation - 3 bedrooms (2 doubles), 2 bathrooms, kitchenette, dining, 2 lounge rooms - perfect for a family or group of friends.
