Inscription.
On this site in 1900 was constructed the banking headquarters for the Alex Brown Investment Banking Company, America's oldest banking house in continuous operation.

This building survived the Great Baltimore Fire of 1904 with evidence of that event remaining today in the damaged stonework.

The building and historic space were restored and rededicated in 1997 for Chevy Chase Bank.
