This two-story awesome brick building must have been impressive in its day. After the city folded, people used the bricks for other projects and all that is left are a couple of walls. I visited back in 1981. It is worth a side-trip if you are in the area. Watch out for unmarked vertical mine shafts on the nearby hillsides!

Gary, from the Black Range Lodge, opened the bank for us for a little tour. The building maintains its historical status with the existing interior wooden structures including the teller's window. The original vault remains and is incredible to see. There are many historical photos and other artifacts. Absolutely worth a visit if you are history buff.

Nice original building with local artists gallery. The bank has been turned into a museum, well staged by a local resident. The vault has a beautiful ornate door made by Diebold of Canton, Ohio.

original, beautiful, the safe, structurally sound being so old and separate building within the bank itself. The safe door is even painted. I believe 5 windows for transactions still intact

Find the time it's opened and give it an hour. There are some great artifacts and you can get some oral history from the docent.

Amazing original 1880's bank with original vault and teller windows is now an art gallery! Don't miss the opportunity to check out local artists work and see the vault that even visitors like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid left intact (maybe they were too busy hanging out at the 24 saloons in town or over at Sadie Orchard's brothel).

In the picturesque Black Range Mountains community of Kingston, the historic Percha Bank and Museum on Main Street stands as a monument to former rough and tough days in what was once the largest and rowdiest town in New Mexico. Next door to the ancient and majestic Black Range Lodge (now a charming historical B&B), the bank has had several... More
