Summer Tours of Beekman Bank!
July 12 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 11:00am, repeating until September 2, 2019
We are pleased to announce that an “Access History” grant from the Jackson County Cultural Coalition will allow Historic Jacksonville, Inc. to open the historic C.C. Beekman Bank to the public again this summer. “Banking hours” are 11am to 4pm, Friday through Monday, from May 25 through September 2.
The Bank, located at the corner of California and North 3rd streets, is the oldest financial institution in the Pacific Northwest and has been preserved as a museum since Cornelius Beekman locked the doors in 1915. Over $40 million in gold—worth about $1 billion today—crossed the bank’s counters during Jacksonville’s heyday in the second half of the 19th Century. Tours are free, but a suggested $3 donation helps preserve and maintain the.
