Kings County Savings and Trust

The Kings County Savings and Trust building was built between 1860 and 1867. The building’s ornate detail and luxurious appearance is representative of the French Second Empire Architectural Style that was popular during a time when it was not considered vulgar to openly display and abundance of wealth. For well over a century, the building was occupied by banking institutions. Since the 1990’s, it has been occupied by the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center.
