Savings Bank of Danbury Partners with the Danbury Museum on Rehabilitating the Charles Ives Home to Celebrate Shared History


In honor of their 170th anniversary, the Savings Bank of Danbury will sponsor Phase III of the rehabilitation of the Charles Ives Home, an important piece of Danbury and the Bank’s history.

“This project is only possible because the Savings Bank of Danbury chose to tell the story of their history through our Danbury Museum,” said Brigid Guertin, Executive Director of the Danbury Museum and Historical Society.  “Their story is part of the history of Danbury and they continue to be a strong supporter and member of our community. The result of our efforts will be a world class destination that we can all be proud of.”
