Andrew L. Tuttle Memorial Museum

Home Saving and Loan Building


On April 18, 1888, several local businessmen founded The Defiance Home Saving and Loan Association, which grew to serve the financial needs of the community as well as play an important part in the city’s development.  By 1917, the Home Saving and Loan occupied an impressive classic Roman style building at 514 West Third Street. 

The Andrew L. Tuttle Memorial Museum is proud to call this historic Defiance landmark its current home.
