Sleep in a Historic Bank
Bartlett TX is one of the most unique historic towns in Texas. The Bartlett National Bank was opened in 1904 and was an operational bank until the 1930s. It was rescued from an abandoned state and has been lovingly restored. You can walk down historic brick streets and window shop in a variety of quaint stores. The Bank contains many original features – including the VAULTS! There are 2 vaults that we haven’t broken into yet – wonder what could be inside?
The Bartlett National Bank now boasts 2 bedrooms in the old banker office space, a kitchen in what was the old teller station with the teller walls still in tact. The Bank Managers office is now your study and contains letters originally written in that very office in the early 1920’s. The old bank vaults serve as a pantry and wine cellar. The soaring ceilings are ornate and showcase the true beauty of this historic building. You’ll be able to gaze at the detail while resting on the sleeper sofa in the bank lobby turned living room.
