Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Documents a series of Carson City, Nevada Banks and other early Nevada businesses. The Bank records begin with materials from the Carson City Savings Bank from 1876-1884, through the Bullion and Exchange Bank from 1884-1903, and end with the State Bank and Trust Company from 1903-1907. The records document bank transactions, accounts, and checks as well as mining stocks. The records give an overview of banking in Nevada during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
The Carson City Savings Bank was incorporated in 1875, when local businessmen saw a need for banking in Carson City, Nevada, particularly after the opening of the US Mint in 1869. The bank became the Bullion and Exchange Bank in 1882. With the decline in mining and reductions in development, the Bullion and Exchange Bank was restructured into the State Bank and Trust Company in 1903, failing by 1907. In turn, each of the three banks served the growing population of Carson City by providing banking services and dealing in mining stock.
