Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Second Bank of the United States

Second Bank of the United States

Outside, the Second Bank embodies Greek Revival architecture in the United States. Inside, the Second Bank’s collection of late 18th- and early 19th-century portraits paint a picture—literally—of many of the movers and shakers who lived in Historic Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood during the birth of the U.S.
