“Our new Garden District location has a distinctly New Orleans feel with a heavy focus on neighborhood banking,” said Fidelity Bank President and CEO Chris Ferris in a press release. “We’re committed to building relationships throughout the area we service, and our entire banking team is excited to add this new location Uptown.”

The Rink’s history dates back to 1884 when it was built as a roller rink and attraction for visitors to the Cotton Exposition. Founded in 1908, Fidelity Bank is a mutual financial institution chartered by the state of Louisiana with $1 billion in assets. Visit
