The Bank Block in Bath, Maine

As part of our Building History series, today we take a look at The Bank Block in Bath, Maine:

“The Bank Block is so named because in Bath’s shipbuilding heydey it was the home of four different banks.  Built in 1859 for Oliver and William Moses, it displays the elaborate cornice, brackets and hooded windows of the Italianate style, and was probably designed by Francis Fassett.  It has housed banks, the street railway waiting room, restaurants, shops, F. W. Woolworth’s store, and now a cooking store occupies all three storefronts and offices fill the second floor.”
