Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
This beautiful, modernistic, geodesic dome bank building located at N. W. 23rd and Classen Blvd. was built at a cost in excess of one million dollars.

Once described as "one of the nation's most revolutionary bank designs," the Citizens National Bank of Oklahoma City (1958) was designed by the architectural firm Bailey, Bozalis, Dickinson, and Roloff. The structure was the fifth geodesic dome to be constructed worldwide and it was the first to be purposed as a bank.

The gold dome was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. It is located at 1112 N.W. 23rd Street (on historic Route 66) in Oklahoma City, OK.
