Our history & heritage

Heritage center locations

Heritage center locations

Bank of America Heritage Centers showcase the role our bank has played in the development of industries, infrastructure and various public works projects, in addition to the continued growth within the communities our banks serve.

Located in several corporate and banking centers throughout the country, these interactive museums allow customers, shareholders, associates and the general public an opportunity to experience our story firsthand through artifacts, documents, illustrations and video.

Since the first bank in our legacy opened its doors over 200 years ago, thousands of banks have converged on the path to becoming the Bank of America. Throughout that collective history, we have worked to provide the resources that have helped make our country’s promise of opportunity for all a reality. It is a heritage we are committed to honoring and preserving.


Our flagship center is located in Founders Hall at our corporate headquarters. Visitors can explore the breadth of our history in a series of chronological exhibitions, brought to life by numerous artifacts from the Bank of America Collection. Rotating exhibits provide special features from the collection throughout the year. The center also offers an interactive touch screen time line, where our heritage is accessible at the touch of a finger. This space is available to host school groups, events and Associate Day One tours.

Los Angeles

Located in the banking center lobby of our downtown corporate building, this center follows the expansion of the West and details Southern California history, with a focus on the film and agricultural industries that thrive in the region. Ledgers from predecessor banks and maps of 19th-century Los Angeles help tell the story of how this boomtown developed into a thriving metropolis.

This tribute to the first computer used in banking is located at our Concord campus. The entire space is dedicated to the machine that revolutionized banking and served as the world’s first successful use of computers in business operations: ERMA (Electronic Recording Method of Accounting). The exhibition features large portions of one of the first, intact, original models from the 1950s, and explores the history of its companion technology, MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition)—the numbers on the bottom of checks, still in use today.
