The Union Bank Museum

Built in 1841, the Union Bank is considered Florida’s oldest surviving bank building. Originally opened as a “planter’s bank” during the antebellum period, the building became home to the National Freedman’s Savings and Trust Company following Emancipation. Over the next century, the building housed numerous businesses and organizations, including a dance studio, shoe factory, church, youth center, beauty parlor, and state and county offices.

In 1971, the Union Bank was moved from its original location on the west side of Adams Street, between College and Park Avenues, to its current location just east of the Historic Capitol Museum on Apalachee Parkway. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Union Bank first opened as a museum in 1984 after extensive restoration.
