Plano in Collin County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Plano National Bank / I.O.O.F. Lodge Building
After a building they shared was destroyed by fire in 1895, the Plano National Bank (est. 1887) and the I.O.O.F. (Odd Fellows) Lodge (est. 1870) erected this commercial building here in 1896. In 1936 the structure was redesigned by architect/builder Abe Cain with art deco detailing. The building was remodeled in 1958 but a 1980s restoration project returned it to its 1936 art deco appearance. Prominent features include Czechoslovakian black Carrara glass.
