Built between 1819 and 1824, The Second Bank of the United States is an example of Greek Revival architecture designed by William Strickland. The Second Bank was modeled after the Parthenon in Greece. Today, the bank is home to an extraordinary portrait gallery of revolutionary heroes and federal statesman of the 18th century.
