About this Exploration:
The Barnes State Bank was originally built in 1911 and robbed at gunpoint twice between 1911 and 1924. The bank became insolvent in 1924 and the building served as a post office, cafe, plumbing shop and electrical shop.
The "Barnes State Bank" was listed on the the Kansas Preservation Alliance
Endangered Sites List in 2006.
The building fronts historic K-9 (also known at the Great White Way) along Railroad Avenue.
Clarence Barker, Salem, Oregon, purchased the stately red brick structure and has been responsible for it's restoration as a memorial to his great grandfather, Clinton Hogue, one of the original founders of the bank in 1911.
