Built in 1958, the Gold Dome in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma is a notable landmark along Route 66 that was inspired by the geodesic dome designed by famed architect, Buckminster Fuller. Originally housing the Citizens State Bank, the Gold Dome was praised for its revolutionary design from its inception and was touted as "the bank of tomorrow".
While the structure has seen a variety of occupants since it was constructed, its unique architecture has fueled several decades worth of efforts to revitalize the historic property. These preservations efforts are still ongoing today with the hopes that visitors can continue to admire the iconic Gold Dome on their road trips through Oklahoma City for years to come.
