J.B. Sloan at Silver City Cemetery 1958

Photographed by Richard Cobb for the Daily Oklahoman in 1958, this image was printed with the caption, “J.B. Sloan of Tuttle saw the country grow up and Silver City die when rail came to Minco.” This image was shared with FNBT by the Oklahoma History Center. The Silver City Cemetery is located two miles north of Tuttle and represents a key foundational starting point for Tuttle. It also is the final resting place for many of Tuttle’s founding families: Bonds, Campbells, Tuttles and Johnsons, among others.

The Tuttle Then and Now gallery displayed at the First National Bank & Trust Co. in Tuttle was designed to commemorate the people and places that make Tuttle unique. FNBT has been an independent community bank serving central and southwest Oklahoma since 1892.
