Hoosac Bank is spending nearly $3 million to make its new financial center look like an old restaurant.

Slated to open this year-and believed to be the first of its kind in New England-the financial center will house a bank branch, an insurance firm, and an investment products sales office under one roof. And to the delight of historic preservation groups, it will retain the original cupola, "pie- man" weathervane, and three dormers from the Howard Johnson's restaurant that was opened on the site 60 years ago.
