The main steel framework of the new Arvest Bank in Gardner has been erected in recent days. This photo shows where the front walls and entrance will exist. The new bank is being constructed on a former vacant lot at the northeast corner of Sycamore and Main Streets. Arvest Bank already has an existing facility in a business building at the northwest corner of Mulberry and Main Streets, less than a block away. The bank operations there will be moved to the new building.
