The Chapin National Bank Building is a historic bank building at 1675-1677 Main Street in Springfield, Massachusetts. It was built in 1917 for the Chapin National Bank, which was established in 1872 by the local transportation magnate Chester Chapin, on the site of a previous building of the same bank. The two story Neo-Classical cast stone structure has classical Doric friezes on both its Main Street and Lyman Street facades. When built both facades had a line of Doric columns, but those on the Lyman Street side have either been paneled over or removed.[2] The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
