Patch Asks: Where in the Oranges Is It?

A stylish building on a busy street...but where?

Patch's alert readers have (almost) never been stumped. This building, a neo-classical gem, is located on a busy street. Tell us where it is, what it is and, for extra credit, what this building was built to be.

Good luck!

394 Scotland Road, Orange...currently houses a TD Bank branch, originally was the Orange Valley Bank.

I'll take the extra credit. It was built to be a bank. ORANGE VALLEY BANK built 1917

I'll add it closed in 1970.

This is a fun idea—just like the one I had in 2002 for my long-running "Where in Montclair?" photo-guessing-game column in The Montclair Times!

Yes, I enjoyed the same sort of column in the Paterson newspaper when I was growing up, and I've seen similar going back a century. I think it's remarkable to see how much we collectively know about our surroundings.

Doesn't it say 1923 at the top of the building?
badbul December 11, 2012 at 06:01 PM
Maybe they started building in 1917 and finished in 1923.

BE CAREFUL IN THAT AREA!

Thank you very much! I'm wowed by how observant you all are -- and how knowledgeable. I have a longer article in process about the bank's history. (Hint: it was build just 6 years before the 1929 crash.)

This beautiful building which I see every morning going to work is a bank on Scotland Road facing Freeman Street in Orange, NJ.
