The Anthracite Bank of Tamaqua was built by William Donaldson in 1850 as the town's first bank. In 1865 it became the First National Bank and moved across the street. During the 1880's the building served as the home of Col. Henry L. Cake who let troops into several American Civil War battles including Williamsburg and Crampton's Gap. The Italianate and Federal style structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
