Step into a 1921 Smith, Hinchman and Grylls, 8-story designed building which stands tall within a registered historic district. Ionic columns, Palladian windows flanked with pilasters, a 35’ coffered gold-leaf ceiling and marble details will provide pure inspiration for you to create a perfectly composed, personalized event. The Treasury offers a historical ambience combined with sophisticated charm and impeccable architectural details.

The City of Pontiac was first settled in 1818 where the Saginaw Indian Trail crossed the Clinton River. Chief Pontiac, the legendary courageous leader of the Ottawa Indian tribe, stands 16’ tall on the outside of our building. Sculpted by distinguished artist, Marshall Fredericks, this gold anodized sculpture has become a symbol of strength in the downtown area.

Built in the historic era of the roaring twenties, The Treasury has long been associated with the banking and financial industry. Many of its historic architectural characteristics and details have been preserved: the wall mounted CNP logo (Community National Bank), original marble-top banking tables and floors, original vault and safety deposit boxes, even the President’s office upstairs with its original cork flooring.

Part of the Pontiac Commercial Historic District, The Treasury was designed by Smith Hinchman and Grylls—renowned architects whose famous structures include the Detroit Opera House, Penobscot Building and Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts.

The Treasury—restored to its original glamour and legendary style—is a piece of Michigan history.
