1914: Stock Yards State Bank, 1859 N. Lawrence (now Broadway). As North Wichita's fortunes boomed with the bustling cattle trade, financial services came to the neighborhood. On May 10, 1921, this institution -- which also once occupied the Flatiron Building at 21st Street --gained the distinction of being the first Wichita bank ever to be robbed, when a man escaped on foot with $12,000 in cash ($140,000 in today's money). No one could explain how the robber gained entrance to the locked building, and he was never caught.
