This collection consists of over one dozen ledgers of Merchants National Bank (Quakertown, Pennsylvania) dating from the time of the bank's organization in 1902 until 1936. It includes daily balance books, bond records, saving fund ledgers, a certified check ledger, individual ledgers, general day books, general cash books, individual liabilities, daily statement books, and general ledgers. Some volumes are indexed.
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 Quakertown Historical Society directly for more information.
