This collection consists of six volumes of records of the First National Bank of Perkasie, including the first and fourth minute books of the bank (1901-1912 and 1928-1935), a statement book (1906-1910) and a savings fund ledger. Also included are a few pamphlets and ephemera relating to the bank and its successor, Bucks County Bank and Trust Company.
Summary descriptive information on this collection was compiled in 2012-2014 as part of a project conducted by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania to make better known and more accessible the largely hidden collections of small, primarily volunteer run repositories in the Philadelphia area. The Hidden Collections Initiative for Pennsylvania Small Archival Repositories (HCI-PSAR) was funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
This is a preliminary finding aid. No physical processing, rehousing, reorganizing, or folder listing was accomplished during the HCI-PSAR project.
In some cases, more detailed inventories or finding aids may be available on-site at the repository where this collection is held; please contact Perkasie Historical Society directly for more information.
