Description

The bank that stood in Thompson, Conn., since 1835, was emphatically horizontal in design, perfectly conveying the sense of mass and solidarity that a bank should possess. The banking company moved to Putnam, Conn., in 1893. In 1963, Old Sturbridge Village acquired the building and moved it to Sturbridge for restoration as an early-19th-century bank in the museum village.
