Hudson -- The Brewster Building, built in 1839, and now operating as a First Merit Bank, will be closing its doors at 5 Aurora St. Oct. 18.
The former Citizens Republic bank, acquired by First Merit in September 2012, has been operating as a First Merit Bank since April, according to First Merit's Media Relations Officer Rob Townsend.
"Since the bank is just a half mile from our First Merit Branch at the Acme Plaza, we have decided to close the Aurora Street branch," Townsend said.
The First Merit branch is located at 116 W. Streetsboro St.
Townsend said there will be no loss of jobs because of the closing.
"All employees have been assigned to another location," he said.
First Merit, the building owner, is the only business operating at the historic facility, according to Townsend. He said his company plans to put the building up for sale.
According to information provided by Destination Hudson's Liz Murphy, the building has been a bank more than 100 years when the First National Bank of Hudson located there in 1908. It is reportedly the oldest commercial building in continuous use in the Western Reserve.
