The Humboldt Bank, was organized in 1869. The collection consists of three ledgers, two signature books (1883-1902) and one deposit book (1869-1872).
The Humboldt Bank, organized in 1869, was one of the oldest Savings Banks in California. It was originally located at No. 4 Kearny Street, when, having purchased a site and erected a three-story building, it removed to 16-18 Geary Street. In 1905 the property was sold and the site at 785 Market Street, near Fourth, was purchased. The Beaux Arts building was completed in 1908 by architect Frederick H. Meyer.
