(Coffeyville Historical Society)

The Condon National Bank occupied this building until 1953, when a real estate office moved in. In the 1970s, the city purchased the building. In 1992 the building was restored to appear as it did at the time of the attempted robbery. The bullet holes from the gunfight were lost in the restoration.
