Fidelity Bank partners with local business owner to assure the long-term vibrancy of local landmark

Fidelity Bank is excited to announce a collaboration with a local business owner and investor to assure vibrancy of downtown landmark building. The building at 56 Common Street, where the Fidelity Bank banking center is located, was recently sold to Quabbin Realty, LLC. As the long-term anchor tenant, Fidelity Bank will continue to service the financial needs of the Barre community following the sale.

“We are excited to collaborate with Quabbin Realty, while we continue providing the LifeDesign promise our clients have come to know and trust in Barre,” said Edward F. Manzi, Jr., chairman and CEO, Fidelity Bank. “As the building’s anchor tenant, we look forward to having an integral role in Quabbin Realty’s vision to bring new life back into the building and we remain committed to stay in Barre for decades to come.”

The building, which has been home of the Fidelity Bank banking center since 2016, and to Barre Savings Bank for decades prior, also offers 15,000 sq. ft. of versatile office, medical, and education workspace, as well as ample parking for staff and visitors. It is located in downtown Barre on the beautiful and historic common.

“We are happy to have Fidelity Bank on board as our long-term tenant at 56 Common Street,” said Carl W. Lindley, owner, Quabbin Realty, LLC. “Fidelity Bank has been a great community partner to Barre over the years and we are enthusiastic for what the future will bring as we work together to revitalize the building to serve our tenants as well as their customers.”

In addition to Fidelity Bank’s commitment to continue serving clients at the Barre location, the bank also remains committed to continuing the legacy of the Barre Savings Charitable Foundation. The $1.5 million Foundation was established when Fidelity Bank merged with Barre Savings Bank in 2016. The foundation now has a value in excess of $2 million. In addition to the Bank’s LifeDesign Community Dividend annual giving the foundation awards more than $100,000 in grants to the Barre community annually. To learn more about the foundation, visit
