The Union Trust Company Building is a historic bank building at 1351 Main Street in Springfield, Massachusetts. The two story Beaux Arts building was constructed in 1907 to a design by Peabody & Stearns and work by sculptor John Evans. The front of the building was designed to resemble a triumphal arch, with the entrance recessed from massive piers supporting a rounded arch, and topped by a large decorated cornice. The building was built for the Union Trust Company (founded 1906), and served as the headquarters of that bank and its successors until 1970. When nominated for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, it was described as Main Street's best Beaux Arts building.[2] It was listed in 1978.[1]
