Sandwiched among the modern buildings in the commercial district of Louisville city is a white, traditional -looking building. This landmark is the Old Bank of Louisville, the city?s former city bank located in downtown Louisville in Jefferson County, Kentucky.

Built in 1837, this Greek Revival-styled building is made of limestone and bricks. It was designed by New Orleans architect James H. Dakin under the supervision of Gideon Shryock. During its time and up until today, the Old Bank building is considered a prime example of small-scale commercial architecture. Its distinctive doorway and columns are very prominent.

Today, the old bank currently serves as the headquarters and lobby of the Actors Theatre of Louisville. For its historical and architectural significance, the Old Bank was added to the list of National Register of Historic Places on August 12, 1971.
