The Springfield Safe Deposit and Trust Company is a historic building at 127-131 State Street in Springfield, Massachusetts. After several corporate takeovers, Fleet Bank closed their branch located in the building. The vacant building was donated to The Community Music School of Springfield.[2] Many of the building's classic Art Deco details remain, including a well-preserved mural of the George Washington Bridge in the main lobby, which also boasts stonework depicting symbols of thrift and prudence from the animal world. The bank building was built in 1933 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
