Sheridan Trust and Savings Bank Building, now owned by Bridgeview Bank

The Sheridan Trust and Savings Bank Building is a 12-story terra cotta building at 4753 North Broadway Avenue in Uptown, Chicago.[1] The first eight floors of the structure were built in 1924 by Marshall and Fox. Huszagh and Hill added a four-story addition in 1928.[2]

The building's original tenant, the Sheridan Trust and Savings Bank, failed in 1931. Uptown National Bank began using the building in 1937.[3] Uptown National remained there until the bank and the building were acquired by Bridgeview Bank in 2003.[4]

On October 8, 2008, the City of Chicago granted the structure Chicago Landmark status.[5]

In popular culture[edit]

In an episode of the television series M*A*S*H in March 1977 ("Post-Op", season 5, episode 24), a patient from Chicago tells Col. Sherman T. Potter that this bank exists at the southeast corner of Broadway and Lawrence after Potter mistakenly believes a tavern stood on the site.
