Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 2 February 2018 is Worcester Five Cents Savings Bank.
The Worcester Five Cents Savings Bank is a historic bank building at 316 Main Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. The six story Romanesque Revival building was constructed in 1891 to a design by Stephen Earle. The building is unusual in downtown Worcester for its use of limestone and buff brick, and for its rounded corner bay. The building originally had plate glass and iron store fronts on its ground floor (the bank occupying the second floor), but this was redone in matching limestone sometime after 1949.
The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, and included in the Mechanics' Hall District in 1980. It served as the corporate headquarters of Chess King during the 1980s. It now houses a handful of professional service firms.
