The Former Bank - Sixty State Place

In 1902, to instill an affluent and awe-inspiring splendor, National Commercial Bank and Trust hired York and Sawyer to create their headquarters, a building later labeled a “temple of finance.” Over 100 years later the exquisite styling and details captured by the Beaux-Arts neoclassical style are still evident.

Today this former centerpiece of financial extravagance has been transformed into an exquisite main ballroom and luxury event venue designed to host special events and social engagements. Restored by The Gordon Companies in 2013, Sixty State Place now combines the most modern amenities while retaining the beauty and elegance of the building’s historic origins.
