1769 - 1964

This Bank occupies the site on which John Hoopes erected the Turk's Head Tavern in 1769. Much of West Chester's early history is associated with The Turk's Head. For nearly 200 years, as tavern and hotel, it was an important center for military, political, and social discussions. Stock of Chester County Banks was often sold at public auction from the hotel porch.
