The Bank of Pennsylvania was created in 1780 to raise money for the Continental Army. The Bank had a special relationship with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in providing a method to control currency and credit. It was the precursor to the Federal Government's First Bank of the United States (1791-1811). The Bank continued to operate until the world-wide financial panic of 1857 -1858. The bank building then served as a federal prison during the Civil War and was demolished in 1867.
