Dime Bank Building, also known as the Dime Bank & Trust Company Building, is a historic commercial building located at Scranton, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania. It is a five-story brick building in the Richardsonian Romanesque style. The original three-story building was built in 1890-1891, and measured 70 by 70 feet (21 by 21 m). Soon after, an additional two-stories were added, as well as a wing measuring 30 by 175 feet (9.1 by 53.3 m). In 1908, the building was again expanded with a concrete and slab fireproof wing. The facade features a delicately ornamented bay window, five-story turret, and three-story rectangular projection terminated at the third floor by a large arched masonry opening.[2]
