Old Stone Bank
The gold dome is the top of the Old Stone Bank building in Providence. The Old Stone Bank building was designed in 1854 and the view here is from the Gov. Stephen S. Hopkins House. It’s distinctive roof is a local historical landmark, and still glows with pride in the late afternoon sun.
Old Stone Bank was most popular here in RI in the late 1960′s, having 14 branches. It failed in 1993 after a bad deal with the federal government. It exists today as a paper company, pursuing lawsuits and tying up loose ends. The actual building is now owned by Brown University today.
