Federal Trust Company Bank in Waterville, Maine

As part of our building history series, today we take a look at the Federal Trust Company Bank in Waterville, Maine:

“The Federal Trust Company was founded in 1923. The original Federal Trust Building was built in 1926 in traditional style adorned with “Moderne” architectural motifs that were popular for Federal government buildings.”

“Much of the original ornamentation, including the ornate door and decorative spandrels beneath the 2 nd and 3 rd floor windows, was replaced when the building was expanded by two thirds to the south. The middle building was J. Peavy & Bro’s, built in 1874. The southernmost building was built for Pomerleau.”

“The original building has always been a bank but has undergone several name changes over the decades. Elm City Tobacco and Atherton’s Furniture have previously occupied the southern building.”
