Hard at Work in Washington
Bank of America began serving Washington more than 140 years ago. Dexter Horton, a Seattle merchant, gained the trust of settlers by keeping their money safe in cloth sacks hidden in coffee barrels throughout his store. In 1870, he began his career as a banker and obtained a national charter in 1910. By 1929, Seattle First National Bank (SeaFirst) grew to serve the entire state. BankAmerica Corporation acquired SeaFirst in 1983 and deepened its ties to Washington in 1992 by buying Rainier Bank. Today, Bank of America is one of the nation’s largest financial institutions and provides services to half of all American households.
