With New York based JP Morgan & Chase Company's aquistion of Chicago based Bank One Chase has become second in size, and assets only to Citigroup. The Historic Marine Bank Building, located at the corner of Sixth, and Washington in downtown Springfield, Illinois is Illinois oldest bank. The historic Marine Bank was owned, and operated by the Bunn family of Springfield, IL from the period of Abraham Lincoln's residence in Springfield until it was aquired by Bank One.

About Photographs: The Chase Sign was installed by Springfield, Illinois based Ace Sign Company 10.17.05. I'll post photographs of the sign fully installed when I get them.

And, Abraham Lincoln banked at Marine Bank, as evidenced by the ledger on display in the old lobby.
