former Wyoming National Bank
Casper, WY



This Wyoming National Bank was designed by Charles Deaton and built in 1964. The building is constructed of reinforced concrete. The 177-foot-tall tower was designed by Harold Engstrom and built in 1968. It is said to have been inspired by the Space Needle in Seattle, WA. The top of the tower had a time and temperature digital display where the Wells Fargo sign was later. The digital display was removed in the early 1990s when it stopped working. In 2016, Wells Fargo removed their sign from the tower, declaring it unsafe. The tower was restored and is now sound. Wells Fargo closed and the building was sold in 2019. The building now houses McGinley Orthopedics.

There were originally clamshell-shaped drive-up kiosks which were demolished. A motor bank structure was built in 1974, shown in the second row of photos above from 2012, second photo. That building was demolished in 2020. The very last photo above shows a concrete sign support which is about a block away. There was another drive-thru bank on that corner which has been demolished. The similar shape would suggest a relationship with the Wyoming National Bank but I don't think it was. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]
