Claycord Online Museum: The Wells Fargo on Clayton & Thornwood – 1969

The Claycord Online Museum is growing, and our latest addition is a great one!

Jules Voerge is a longtime Concord resident & former Branch Manager of the Wells Fargo Bank on Clayton Road & Thornwood, he sent us 18 photos of the opening weekend ceremonies in 1969!

Jules also sent us the following message about the festivities….

We had an open house on Saturday September 6,1969 and opened for business on the following Monday.  The crowd was way beyond our expectation but it wasn’t the food, we brought in the Wells Fargo Stagecoach to give guests and the little ones a ride around the Dianda Plaza parking lot.  A huge attraction and success.

Thanks so much for this wonderful look back to 1969!

Was anybody there that day, and if so, do you remember the event?
