View the beautiful, historical downtown buildings constructed of local limestone. The old bank building on the south side is rumored to have been robbed by the infamous gangster “Pretty Boy Floyd”. The wood plank sidewalk on the west side of the bank building is permanently marked with local ranch brands. Local brands can also be seen on the interior walls of the Stockman Café building.
Look up at the east side of the north building, still affectionately known as the Stockman Café, though no longer in operation, and see the linked chain insignia and the small old bell; remnants of the days when the Independent Order of the Odd Fellows met on the second floor of the building. This widely used symbol of the Odd Fellows have become known as “The Three Link Fraternity”. This symbol is also often seen on old headstones.
The mural “The Count” can be viewed on the east side of the Stockman building, and the old public limestone restrooms still stand to the east of the building.
