former Peoples Savings Bank
Oregon, OH
This former Peoples Savings Bank branch now houses the Future Wave Salon. [map]

Charter One Bank
Toledo, OH
This Charter One Bank appears to be from the 1960s. It was probably also a Peoples Savings Bank originally since the style looks the same as the one shown in Oregon, OH directly above. For more, see this website. [map]

former National City Bank
Youngstown, OH
The National City Bank appears to be from the 1960s. Does anyone know when it was built and what bank was here originally? This photo is from 2009. By 2011, this was a PNC Bank. [map]

Chase Bank
Heath, OH
This Chase Bank, a round structure with a slight dome roof and concrete pylons, appears to be mid-century modern. It was previously a Bank One but I'm not sure if that was the original tenant. [map]

Huntington National Bank
Canton, OH
This Huntington National Bank was built in 1966 as a Canton National Bank branch. I have seen this building style with the fluted knob on top elsewhere in Ohio. For more, see this website. [map]

former bank [gone]
Akron, OH
This former bank was another round building with a knob on top. In 2008, it was an AmTrust Bank. It was vacant in 2009 when this photo was taken. It was still vacant in 2011. By 2014, the building had been demolished.

Key Bank
Findlay, OH
FirstMerit Bank
Tiffin, OH
I believe the Key Bank and FirstMerit Bank were built in 1975 as part of the National City Bank chain. [Findlay map]; [Tiffin map]
