Notes
Survey number HABS CT-319
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-39).
Building/structure dates: 1833 initial construction
Significance: The Connecticut Bank was built in 1833 and is one of the earliest brick structures in Southport which survives to the present day. Designed in the high-style Greek Revival manner of the early nineteenth century, Southport's village bank is a modestly scaled version of the classical plan and detailing of Benjamin Henry Latrobe's Bank of Pennsylvania (1798) and William Strickland's Second Bank of the United States (1818), both in Philadelphia. In 1923 the interior was renovated for residential use. Throughout its history, this 1830s structure, virtually unchanged on the exterior, has blended in with its residential and commercial surroundings.
