Scope and Contents of the Materials

The materials in this collection partially document the financial records of the Sandwich State Bank from 1918-1928.  Box one contains a history of the Sandwich State Bank, file folders of accounts, by name and by type, 1919-1928, and a general daily ledger, 1919-1926.  The accounts by type include such information as interest received, individual deposits, real estate loans, expenses, and savings account.  A separate daily cashbook covers March 21, 1918 to March 31, 1919 and is housed with Box one.

Included with the collection are two separate M.B. Castle Company ledgers.  The researcher should note that there exists the slight possibility that these may be Sandwich Bank records.  However, it is almost certain that they are ledgers of the Castle lumber company, which the founder and owner of the Sandwich Bank, M.B. Castle, also owned.  The two volumes apparently trace the commercial activities of the company from 1866-1880.
