The Bayonne Community Museum is located at 229 Broadway, at the northwest corner of 9th Street and Broadway. The museum stands one block north of the 8th Street Light Rail Station. Constructed in the Beaux Arts architectural style in 1912, the building began its life as the Bayonne Trust Company, and was the home to a series of banks for ninety years. The City of Bayonne acquired the building from Fleet Bank for one dollar in 2002. Utilizing a series of grants, the municipality removed modern banking fixtures and a dropped ceiling from the interior of the building, and restored the interior walls and the three-part stained glass in the ceiling. The former bank is on the State and National Registers of Historic Places. The museum is available for exhibits, performances, cultural events, and meetings.
