Vision Bank [gone]
Ada, OK
This Vision Bank was built in 1961 as a First National Bank drive-thru location. The building was designed by Robert Roloff of Bailey, Bozalis, Dickinson & Roloff. It was sometimes referred to as the "bra bank" because of its unusual shape. These photos are from 2006. Around 2009, this building and sign were demolished and replaced with a new motor bank.

City of Ada North Annex

The City of Ada North Annex was built as an Oklahoma State Bank branch in 1960. The mural is original. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

former bank
Altus, OK
This former bank was built in the early 1970s and a Federal Land Bank. It housed a credit union after the bank closed. In recent years, it housed an eyeglass store. Since around 2016, the building has housed Rent City. [map]

Oklahoma Bank & Trust Co.
Clinton, OK
This Oklahoma Bank & Trust Co. location was built in 1970. [map]

IBC Bank
Duncan, OK
This IBC Bank branch appears to be from the 1960s. Each cylindrical structure contains a separate office inside the bank. The same brickwork continues on the interior. The building was vacant in 2018 and the IBC signs had been removed. [map]

InterBank
Edmond, OK
This InterBank branch was built in 1971. It previously housed a Union Bank and the roof was painted dark green. [map]

Kirkpatrick Bank
Edmond, OK
Although not mid-century modern, I'll include this building anyway since it was strongly influenced by that era. This Kirkpatrick Bank branch was built in 1997 as an American Bank branch. It was designed by Rand Elliott. The building was inspired by the work of architect Mies van der Rohe. The use of glass cullets is a nod to Bruce Goff. [map]
