Bucks County Trust Company, 1886 Doylestown, PA

The Bucks County Trust Company was built in 1886. This was the county’s first trust company. In February 1932 after the stock market crashed and the Great Depression began the Bucks County Trust Company was taken over by the Doylestown National Bank and Trust Co.

The building later became the Melinda Cox Library which opened on May 4, 1917 as the borough’s first free library. Charles Cox, a Doylestown resident who died in 1914, left his entire estate to create a community library named after his mother, Melinda Cox. The library remained on E. State Street until 1933 when the building was sold to Bell Telephone Company.

The Trust Company is now a private residence.

Located at: Corner of Broad and E. Court Street, Doylestown.
