Lebanon National Bank
The Lebanon National Bank was designed by Frank Furness in 1883 and opened on August 11th, 1884. Done in a notably Furnesque style this bank takes elements of Furness’s earlier work in banks like the Centennial National Bank of 1876 and is very close to the work of the Kensington National Bank of 1877. Unfortunately, in 1924, the bank would find they needed more room and work on a new neo-classical replacement would begin in 1925, the new bank literally being built around the old while it remained open.
This project was recently attributed by James M. Duffin at the University of Pennsylvania Archives in the diaries of Furness’s banker Cornelius Nolen Weygandt who was Vice President of the Western National Bank at the time of this commission.
