John Wayne Statue #1

This building was the headquarters of Great Western Savings and Loan, one of the largest savings and loans in the nation. John Wayne did television commercials for Great Western from 1977 until his death in 1979. As a tribute to their celebrity spokesman, Great Western commissioned in 1984 a full-sized bronze statue of the actor by noted American western-motif sculptor Harry Jackson to stand in front of their headquarters. The building was later sold in 1992. Magazine publisher Larry Flynt obtained the building and statue in 1994, and sold the building in 2013.
