The Byram Archibald Neighborhood Center is a community resource that serves the Byram and western section of Greenwich, CT. Its purpose is to provide a safe and structured environment to the young people of Greenwich. Through its various programs, including after-school, summer camp and sports teams, BANC offers a safe haven to do homework, learn social skills and be part of a team.
The BANC center was donated to the Byram community in 1977 by Marie Athlie Archibald. Built in 1920, the center had served as a candy factory and a Masonic temple until being renovated in 1981 into its current neighborhood center form. Several renovations have taken place since and the BANC center is a real community center that serves hundreds of local children.
