Business Member Profile: Five Star Bank

Five Star Bank of Dansville is one of Dansville Area Historical Society’s NEW business members for 2013.  They provide personal and business banking as well as investment services.  A bit of their history is listed below


A proud past. A bright future.

         Our roots go back to the 1850’s when Wolcott Humphrey founded a small community institution named the Wyoming County Bank. Mr. Humphrey’s plan for success was to focus on two things: the customers and the communities in which they lived.
The bank he formed would become the flagship bank of what is today’s Five Star Bank, which now includes three sister banks, each with its own rich history in financial services—The National Bank of Geneva, First Tier Bank and Trust, and Bath National Bank.
Over one hundred and fifty years later, our focus on customer and community hasn’t changed. We have earned a reputation for fairness, integrity and dedication to community. With the devotion of excellent people, we have built a company with solid equity and a strong heritage.
Today, the bank boasts $2.6 billion in assets and does business in 15 contiguous counties in Western and Central New York. We offer our customers the service and convenience of a network of more than 50 branches and a quickly expanding ATM network.
We are proud to be there for you, our customers, wherever, whenever and however you need us. We are Five Star Bank.

On this date: American Legion buys old Baptist Church

April 4, 1938


Daniel Goho Post 87 of the American Legion in Dansville, New York was established on June 16, 1919 during its organizational meeting.  The constitution was written and an application for a charter was signed by 39 men.  This was the first post in Livingston County, NY.  At that time they had no place to call home as meetings and other events were held in various building around the village.  Sponsored events included high school concerts, Boys State program, Scholarships, American Legion Baseball and Boy Scouts.Baptist Church 1910

In 1938 they found a home of their own when they purchased the abandoned Baptist Church at 34 Elizabeth Street for $500 owed in village taxes.  After renovations done mostly by Legionnaires the new quarters was dedicated on July 18, 1938.

Business Member Profile: The Star Theatre (Est. 1921)

Supporting those, who support us, is the idea behind this series of posts.

Originally opened June 4, 1921, the Star Theatre in Dansville, NY is a single screen old fashion movie theatre.  The first shows were black and white silent movies until 1927 when “Talkies” were first shown.  It has a full service snack bar that serves the best popcorn in the area.  It has been owned and operated by the Schmidt family since 1994.  At the end of last year they reopened again after a week installation of a new digital  projector and sound system.

There are not that many old  theatre’s like this left and we are very fortunate to have this one as part of our Downtown Historic District on Main Street.  We hope you will see your next movie at the historic Star Theatre in Dansville.
