First National Bank Building

101 W Main St., Geary, OK 73040

East < GO > West

This building was originally the 1929 First National Bank Building. In 2018 it was the Bank of Western Oklahoma. It is located at the intersection of Broadway & Main St. Caddie -corner from the Canadian River Historical Museum, shown below.

OK, when it comes to creative repurposing of old buildings this is a really cool example. The bank on the corner has gutted a storefront one door to the west and turned it into a drive thru banking facility.

Even the old pressed steel ceiling is still in place in the drive thru.

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.
