BBVA Compass Bank
Raymondville, TX
The BBVA Compass Bank previously housed the Raymondville Bank of Texas. The logo incorporated into the stone reliefs on the building must indicate the original bank name. These buildings appear to be from the 1950s or 1960s. The first row of photos above shows the main bank while the second row shows the drive-thru building which is located across the street. In 2022, the main bank was housing a PNC Bank. The drive-thru building did not seem to be in use. [map]

San Angelo:
former Texas State Bank

former Main Bank & Trust
San Antonio, TX
The former Main Bank & Trust branch may have been built in 1955. It was definitely there by the late 1960s. The building now houses a Luby's Cafeteria. The bank part of the building houses the Fiesta Room. [map]

former bank
San Marcos, TX


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]

Seguin Savings Association
Seguin, TX
The Seguin Savings Association building was built around 1962. The basement was constructed as a nuclear fallout shelter. I believe the bank closed in 1988. The building has housed the Seguin Chamber of Commerce since at least 2012. [map]
