Bank marks build­ing’s 200th

Albany Times Union - - AROUND THE REGION -

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. Seen here are, from left, John Watt Jr. and Kelly Latta of NBT, Su­san Miller of the Cherry Val­ley His­tory Mu­seum, and Chris­tine Er­way of NBT.
