Farmington Historical Society TD Bank Collection - Recent Photo And Object Donations

Everything, everywhere comes to an end. That is the way of the natural world.

I'm sure you already know that the TD Bank location in Farmington closed for business last week and the building will now be for sale. Before the bank closed their doors the Farmington Historical Society was able to secure some photos of the bank and a cache of objects from inside the building as a donation to the society.

The photo collection donation, taken by society President Stan Freeda, is an assortment of photos looking at the exterior and interior of the bank building. It also includes some bank memorabilia, documents, and notes.

Many are from when the bank was Farmington Savings Bank and Farmington National Bank. They eras the photos cover are a range from the mid 1850's through the present.

The object collection donation, photos taken by society Curator, Kyle Leach, is an assortment of objects from the life of the bank building. Most are framed, matted photographs of places in town, the bank itself, people associated with the bank, and some community remembrances. Most were used as decor throughout the building.

They are all from a wide range of eras, starting when the bank was Farmington Savings Bank, then Farmington National Bank, and finally TD Bank. They time periods the objects cover are a range from the mid 1850's through the 1990's.

Both the digital photos and the physical objects will be added to the Museum of Farmington History. New photos will be taken of the objects before making their way into the online museum.

This large donation from TD Bank is thoughtful and generous! We are very grateful for this opportunity to add them to are ever growing collection.
