The American National Bank constructed a 2-story building here in 1917.
In 1953 the American National Bank and Baxter National Bank merged and
became the American Bank at this location.
1995 frieze by Texan artist Paula Collins depicts the city's history.
She used terra-cotta clay and sculpted the scens in individual blocks
that were fired and then fitted together.
We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane
road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned
lanes are still there.
