The Landmark Building
760 Hopmeadow Street
Simsbury, Connecticut
This building was designed by the architectural firm of Smith & Bassette in 1917 for Simsbury Bank & Trust Company, the first bank in the Farmington River Valley. It stands as a fine example of commercial Colonial Revival architecture, which was popular during the early part of the twentieth century. The project was commissioned by Joseph R. Ensign (1868-1941), a prominent local industrialist and principal in what is now Ensign-Bickford Industries.
Through the years, this building was also occupied by the Southern New England Telephone Company, the Simsbury War Bureau, the local chapter of the American Red Cross, Simsbury Town Offices (1974-1981), and various local businesses.
In October, 1993, this building was purchased by Landmark Partners Inc. and was completely restored to its original integrity. The building was renamed The Landmark Building when the restoration was completed in June, 1994.
