Thompson Bank (1835)

The Thompson Bank was chartered in 1833 and the bank building was constructed in the town of Thompson, Connecticut, in 1835. It served as a bank until 1893 and was moved to Old Sturbridge Village in 1963, where the interior was restored to its original nineteenth-century appearance.

    How freakin’ cool is that? It’d be great to have a guest house.

    Do you by any chance know where in Thompson the bank was located before it was moved?

  3. Daniel says:

    I don’t know the exact location.

  4. Christopher (Kit) Wise - Architect says:

    This building is remarkably similar to the central three bays of the Capt. Steven Howland House in Head-of-Westport, MA.

    I wonder if there is some connection in ownership, builder or designer. We have been unable to find anything about the builder or designer of the Howland House. We are in the process of restoring it.
