People's Savings Bank Building

-A A +A
c. 1917. Northwest corner of Court Ave. and Hilton St.

A corner bank building appears as a Greek temple with columns in antis. Two Ionic columns are placed close to the adjacent projecting walls, which are articulated with deepset horizontal joints. The brightness of its light-colored limestone sheathing, together with its size and height, conveys a sense of the importance of this institution for the community.
