Creator:
  • Cousins, Frank, 1851-
Description:
  • The First National Bank Building at 11 Central St. in Salem, Mass.

    The building was built by Charles Bulfinch in 1811, and was originally the Essex Bank Building. It was the first bank building in Essex County, and remained a bank until it became the headquarters of the Salem Fraternity for Boys (the forerunner of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem) in 1869.

    Frank Cousins’ photograph above sugests that it had reverted back to a bank by around 1891. The building now houses an antiquarian bookstore.
