The First National Bank of Kingston was built in 1905. It was the second brick building built in, at that time, Helen, Indian Territory. The building served as a bank from 1905-1935 and was also a grocery store for many years. It is essentially in its original condition other than a few windows that were bricked over. After closure of the grocery store it sat empty for several years before seeing new life as a craft store. It was at one time nominated for inclusion in the National Register but the process was never completed. Old First National now sits empty, but it is for sale. It is in danger of destruction from neglect and disrepair.
