American Hall Building and former Citizens Bank 59 Market Street & 8 Main Street, Village of Attica, Wyoming County
A major project by local developer Bruce Camp, the innovative rehabilitation of the American Hall Building (1872) and former Citizens Bank (1867; 1912) in Attica’s downtown business district is an exemplary effort in this Wyoming County community. Located in the Attica Market & Main Historic District, these two buildings were rehabilitated with a grant from the New York Main Street program, as well as historic tax credits. Newly renovated commercial spaces at the American Hall Building include retailer Attica Auto Supply, a community room, and offices. Vacant for a number of years, the former bank now features commercial space on the first floor and the potential for apartments on the upper floors. Rick Hauser of In.Site: Architecture was the consulting architect.
