Bank, Meridian OK


Location: Meridian, Oklahoma

Photographed: November 2014

Accessibility: Meridian is not a complete ghost town. Some residents still remain. If you chose to visit, the main street is accessible, but the empty residences and buildings are obviously mostly private property, clearly marked.  DO NOT TRESPASS.

History:  A former railroad town from pre-statehood when the westward trek was cutting through the plains, Meridian was established around long gone depots on the Indian Meridian shortly after the turn of the last century. Early on, a large fire decimated the original township, but with the prosperity of the twenties came growth. In a gradual decline from that era forward, Meridian has withered to its current state of near disappearance. More photos here.
