Southbridge Savings Bank and Southbridge National Bank
- Southbridge Savings Bank and Southbridge National Bank
Constructed of brick with brownstone trimmings, located on Main Street, the Southbridge Savings and the Southbridge National Banks are adjacent to the YMCA building (razed January 3, 1975). The Southbridge Savings Bank was incorporated April 23, 1848. The building has two arched windows on the first floor and a large arch overhead. There are chimneys and a balcony depicted. The corner of the Columbian block situated on the Elm and Main Street is on the right. A water trough with light fixture is viewed in the middle of the street, where a horse is drinking. The Southbridge National Bank was originally organized June 7, 1836, when ten of the most prominent town citizens met in the sitting room of William Healey's Tavern: Bela Tiffany, Ebenezer D. Ammidown, recognized as the leader of the initiative; Samuel A. Hitchcock, Linus Child, John Seabury, Theodore Field, Jr., Moses Plimpton, Holmes Ammidown, William Beecher, Chester Clemens, John M. Warren, Larkin Ammidown and Secretary Sam.
