The bank's part in the July 1864 ransom of the city makes it especially of interest to historians, said Mary Beth Corrigan, historian for PNC.
"It is part of the city's legend," Corrigan said.
...
Corrigan, who holds a Ph.D from the University of Maryland, was working with the Historical Society of Washington when PNC acquired Riggs Bank in 2005.
...
"I thought at first I was working myself out of a job," Corrigan said of reviewing and compiling the historic materials.
But there is now such a large amount of materials, from all of the banks acquired by PNC that she will be busy into the future.
Corrigan emphasized that neither she nor materials are set up for research by scholars.
"That is something entirely different," she said."At this point the Legacy Project is to educate the public."
Frederick is key to the Legacy project because of its location, Corrigan said.
...
Fredericktown Bank, which became part of PNC with the acquisition of Farmers & Mechanics, had been established as a savings bank for local farmers, Corrigan said.
Corrigan is coordinating similar Legacy Projects at seven other locations.Each is unique for the specific area, from Fredericksburg, Va., to Baltimore and Annapolis to Westminster.
The Frederick location provides space for a display of equipment, photos and video.Corrigan said some of the banks have graphics or differing displays, mostly dependent on the space available.
One of the historic incidents shown on the video is a fire that raged in Baltimore in 1904.
Only the Mercantile building and another bank were left standing while surrounding buildings were destroyed.Corrigan said much of that was due to planned construction using materials that could withstand fire to protect customers' deposits and records.
She said that construction was done looking at the fire in Chicago which devastated much of that city.The Citizens Branch of the bank was built with that in mind as well, she said.
