Depew National Bank

Main St. at Sims Ave., Depew, OK

East < GO > West

The March 19, 1920 edition of the Depew Independant describes this as being the site of the future Depew National Bank. This is what the "future" bank turned out to be, and apparently these guys were not messing around because the June 11th edition says the roof was already on the new bank! By July 2nd they were announcing that the new bank would open on July 15th.

Time has taken its toll on the apparently long abandoned little bank building and by 2012 when we snapped this photo the roof was missing.

x About Us 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
xDid You Know: 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.
