BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A bank building that's been part of North Bennington, Vt., since 1864, has been donated to two nonprofit groups.

Merchants Bank says it is donating the building to the Fund for North Bennington and the Preservation Trust of Vermont.
 
The Bennington Banner reports bank CEO Michael Tuttle says the decision is bittersweet. The bank is opening a new branch two miles away.
 
The groups haven't decided how to use the building yet. It was built as the First National Bank of North Bennington in 1864.
