DESIGNATED BOSTON LANDMARK by The boston landmark commission
When it was constructed in 1876, the Charlestown 5 Cents Saving Bank was the most important commercial building in Charlestown. It was designed by the firm of Moffette and Tolman in the High Victorian Gothic Style. The building also housed Charlestown's Masonic Lodge on its top floors. It is now "A Designated Boston Landmark" by the Boston Landmark Commission.
The Charlestown Savings Bank was founded in 1854 in a small brick building in City Square. In 1873, the Bank's Board of Directors voted to build a new building to support the increased need for space. The Thompson Square site was selected and purchased from the estate of the late Timothy Thompson for $30,000. The present building was built for $100,000, according to the plans of the architects Moffette and Tolman, and the building was dedicated on April 1, 1876.
