Description

This bank is located in the central part of Lamport Hills. Named after the owner, Dawson Steeds, Steeds Bank opened in the middle of Lamport Hills in 1977. It was quite successful due to it being the only bank in the suburb. Mr Steeds, a prominent Freemason, spent most of his life running the bank. It is actually rumored that the man died in his office. The bank continued to run smoothly until the Malton Incident. It has been designated EHB by the Lamport Hills barricade plan. Tagging it earns 1 XP.

The Lamport Hills Incident

Given its proximity to the birthplace, childhood home and workplace of the notorious Dr Alexis Reed, it is no wonder that this sinister bank should also have its share of rumours relating to the Lamport Hills Incident, which led to Lamport Hills being one of the first suburbs to succumb to zombification.

Most convincing among these is that this bank was where Reed stored her stolen (and infected) organ specimens before they could be transplanted into her clients (or victims). Mr Steeds himself is alleged to have been involved in the repugnant scheme, as it was he who spearheaded the introduction of a special refrigerated section in the bank's safety deposit vault. (The suggestion that this chilled vault was actually intended for the safekeeping of Coca-Cola's new recipe Coca-Cola Minus has never been conclusively disproved despite repeated ransacking of the vaults.)

It is thought that Steed's involvement may have led to his untimely and suspicious death in his office, and not a perforated stomach ulcer as was announced in Freemasonry Now.

Many account holders were among the first to become infected with the zombie plague, including the rector of St Max's.
