Chartered in 1791, the First Bank of the United States was erected in the neo-classical style to echo the democracy of Ancient Greece. The bank building was restored for the Bicentennial in 1976.

The First Bank of the United States building is the oldest bank building in America and may be the oldest building in America with a classical facade.

The building is to be the future home of the Civil War and Underground Railroad Museum of Philadelphia.
