Old Stone Bank

For the past two days you've seen this building from a couple of different angles. Today I thought I'd show it to you straight on It's a beautiful building. Unfortunately, it's empty, and has been for years. The building was built in 1854 and was last used in 1993.

I was fortunate once to get to peek inside. (a film company had rented the building to serve as the commissary while they filmed in the area.) The doomed roof sits right over a circular teller area for the bank. It a sight to see.

More info, but not completely up to date as Brown University no longer owns the building, can be found at:
