Bristol Bank and Trust Company (1922)

April 2nd, 2011 Posted in Banks, Bristol, Neoclassical

In downtown Bristol there are two buildings which once housed the Bristol National Bank (established in 1875). The first building is at 245 Main Street and was succeeded by the second building, at 200 Main Street. Built in 1920-1923, the second building later became the Bristol Bank and Trust Company, and still bears that name. It was designed by the firm of McKim, Mead & White, although McKim and White had died by that time. The building was probably the work of Stanford White‘s son, Lawrence White.

    We were cleaning out my mother’s home following her death and stumbled across a bank book that appears to still have a balance!We just wanted to check and see if this could somehow still be sitting in some really old account book just waiting for her!!
    her name was Mildred Nina Vilardi,DOB 10/23/28, the account # on the book is 37212.It just would be interesting to know what /if this account is settled.
    Thank you- Justine Brown (daughter)
