Bank marks building’s 200th
NBT Bank on Friday concluded a week-long celebration of a milestone at its Cherry Valley branch. The building has housed a number of different banks over the past 200 years, but it has always been a bank since the National Central Bank first opened on Oct. 8, 1818. It is also the oldest bank in New York State west of Albany, NBT says. NBT provided lunch from local restaurants for bank customers and held a raffle for local giveaways during the week. On Friday, the branch hosted a press conference and presented a check for $1,000 to Cherry Valley Historical Association.
