Bank of Bethesda

Established November 19, 1919

The Bank of Bethesda, founded by Walter Tuckerman and George Sacks at the main crossroads of Bethesda, contributed to the rapid growth and success of Bethesda. Situated on the site of the town’s original blacksmith shop, the building is constructed of local stone that matches the facade of other Bethesda landmarks. The Bank of Bethesda closed in 1996.
