Colorado Attractions September 05, 2018
by Annie This May Just Be The Most Unique Bank In All Of Colorado
A bank is a bank is a bank… or is it? In my 28 years on this earth, I have found most bank buildings to be the same: usually constructed of brick and chock-full of cash and Dum Dums for the kids. However, I recently discovered that not all banks are created equal, as demonstrated by this bank that may just be the most unique in all of Colorado:
Welcome to La Junta, Colorado; a historic resting spot and trading post along the iconic Santa Fe Trail that is now an important stop for Amtrak and the BNSF Railway Co.
Home to various historic gems like Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site...
Built in 1833, Bent's Old Fort was the first only white American settlement on the Santa Fe Trail between Missouri and Mexico.
...and Picketwire Canyon, La Junta has been an important location throughout various times in history, making it a must visit for every Coloradan!
Did you know that one of the largest dinosaur track sites in the world is right here in La Junta, Colorado? Now you do!
As previously mentioned, La Junta is now a vital railroad hub, which is a title it first earned back in the 1800s when it served as a stop along the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway.
With the such a fascinating railroad history, it should come as no surprise that La Junta pays homage to trains in various ways, including one of the branches of their local State Bank!
Founded in 1893, one of The State Bank's branches is located inside an old Santa Fe caboose, making for one of the most unique banks in not just Colorado, but America.
