Notes
Survey number HABS CT-315
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-35, FN-36).
Building/structure dates: 1865 initial construction
Significance: The Southport Savings Bank was erected in 1863-65, and designed according to the plans for the Danbury (Connecticut) Bank. The original building specifications for the mason and carpentry work have been preserved and are valuable records of mid-nineteenth century construction techniques. Because of this handsome structure's institutional function and utilitarian design, it is one of Southport's most important surviving buildings from this period. The Savings Bank was chartered in 1854 and became a branch of the Bridgeport Bank in 1955.
