05. Bank of Chandler Building

    The building bordering Commonwealth is somewhat of a mystery.  On that lot, Dr. Chandler constructed the headquarters of the Chandler Improvement Company before the San Marcos and these other businesses were here. The building you see resembles photos of that original structure, but it is distinctly different today and is known to have undergone many renovations over the decades.  Whatever the case, this location has played a significant role in Chandler history.  Along with selling land parcels to Chandler pioneers here in the early days, Dr. Chandler also operated the Bank of Chandler here for many years.  In fact, this location has almost continuously been a bank since the founding of the Chandler Townsite.  Until recently, it was a Bank One branch, and before that it was a Valley National Bank for many years.
