Forgotten Landmark-Bank of Union (Richardson) Building, Union City, OK

Richardson Building, W. Division Street and Kate Boevers, Union City, OK











The Bank of Union began in 1900 with $10,000 in borrowed capital on the first floor of a two-story, wood-frame building in Union City of Oklahoma Territory, seven years before Oklahoma became a state. In 1910, this brick bank building was built across the street from the Union City school and the bank shared that corner with the school for sixty-seven years. In 1977, The Bank of Union constructed a new building and moved four blocks east to its present location at 206 North Main Street.[i]
