November 17, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

BCOP Virtual Discussion 11/17: An Update on Alexander Hamilton’s First Bank of the U.S. – ZOOM ID 925 0738 7624

Please join us tomorrow Tuesday, November 17th at 4:00 pm for a status update on the restoration of the First Bank building. Many of you will recall learning about the rich history of the First Bank of the United States at our BCOP event in 2017. Tom Caramanico, Executive Director of the Independence Historical Trust, will provide the status of the First Bank’s building restoration and share some of the exhibits contemplated for the project, as design work has been ongoing even during the pandemic shutdown. Tom will share a preview of the completed project along with expected completion and ultimate opening to visitors.

Alexander Hamilton’s vision for a national bank was chartered by Congress in 1791 and completed in 1797 in historic Philadelphia. It was within its walls that Hamilton created the U.S. financial system. After its charter expired in 1811, the building was purchased by well known Philadelphian Stephen Girard where it served as headquarters for Girard Bank. It has been part of the Independence National Historical Parks Service since the 1950’s, but had been largely unoccupied since about 2000

Our moderator will be BCOP member, Dr. Jonathan Scott, PhD, Professor of Finance and Department Chair, Temple University Fox School of Business.
