Description

The Providence National Bank in 1979. Construction of the bank was completed in 1930. Much of the building was demolished in 2005 to make room for a luxury condo dubbed, 'One Ten Westminster.' The project ultimately was scrapped and now only the facade of the Providence National Bank remains, vehemently preserved by the RI Preservation Society.
