State Bank of Raymer

Weld County

Constructed by contractor James Benton Coulter of Fort Morgan for Joseph Quinn, a twenty-seven-year-old U.S. National Bank employee from Denver, the State Bank of Raymer is important for its association with the development of financial services in the rural town of New Raymer.

State Bank of Raymer

Between 1915 and 1926, the State Bank of Raymer provided citizens and the agricultural and business community in and around New Raymer with a local financial institution that was largely owned and operated by their neighbors.

The State Bank of Raymer is also a fine example of a small-scale Early 20th Century American Movements commercial bank building as constructed in rural Weld County. Features consistent with architectural trends of the period include the building’s light-colored brick on its street-facing sides, flat roof with parapet, simple ornamentation, large storefront windows, and cutaway corner entry.
