Stock Yards State Bank, 1859 N. Lawrence (now Broadway).
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.
