Texas Bank first opened its doors for business in May 1973. The bank was originally established in Tatum, Texas by a group of local investors who saw the need for financial services from a community institution that could better serve the town's needs.
The bank experienced success and grew steadily. In 1987, Henderson businessman and investor W.C. George acquired the majority of the bank's stock. That same year ground was broken for a branch in Henderson; the branch opened its doors a year later at its location on Highway 79 N.
Texas Bank continued to grow in the ensuing years. An extensive building project in 1995 gave the Henderson location a new computer center, community room, additional office space, and a more convenient drive-through facility to make banking "on the go" easier.
In 1999, the Nacogdoches Branch of Texas Bank opened its doors at 500 North Street. Five years later, the Convenience Center at 1815 Hwy 79 S was added. Branches were opened in Longview and Tyler in 2009 and 2010, respectively, opening up the customer base and offering more people the convenience and personal service only a local banking institution could offer.
In late 2013, the Henderson Downtown location was opened which gave the community of Henderson and Rusk County yet another location to help meet the needs of the area.
Throughout the years, Texas Bank has endeavored to be a key part of all of the communities we serve, providing essential financial services at every location. We offer a comprehensive list of checking and savings accounts, as well as loans and business services.
