Winfield National Bank Building

Picture of property 901 Main Street
Winfield (Cowley County)
Listed in National Register Jan 20, 2012

Architect: American Fixture Company
Area of Significance: financial institution
Architectural Style(s): Classical Revival

By the early 1890s, there were four bank buildings located at the intersection of Ninth and Main in Winfield. The Winfield National Bank built a two-story brick building at the southwest corner of this prominent intersection in 1879 and significantly remodeled the building in 1916. However, by 1923, the bank had contracted with the American Fixture Company to construct a new building. Just as the 1879 brick building had reflected the bank's investment in the community with its construction of one of the community's early brick structures, the new 1923 Classical Revival-style building reflected financial prosperity and stability. The bank survived the Great Depression, but later merged with First National Bank in 1945 and moved across the street. The building's Classical Revival features include a formal, symmetrical facade and a smooth stone exterior. It has a temple front with paired pilasters framing the recessed entrance and a tall and prominent parapet. The building is nominated for its local significance in the area of commerce and architecture.
