2021:
This former bank housed a Frost Bank in recent years. The building housed the State Bank & Trust in the 1970s. The gold metallic screens were removed from the facade around 2017. In 2018, the building subdivided to create retail space. The orange glazed tile was covered with white paint. The building shown in the second rows above is the former Frost Bank motor bank which is just down the block. It was probably built in the 1960s at the same time as the main bank building. It was still vacant in 2021. [bank map]; [motor bank map]
