1. An 1890 Bank Building Marker
Inscription.  Irish quarrymen mined stone for this Victorian structure on Bower's Hill (2 mi. N), near home of a bank director, L.J. Bower. With its fine quality masonry and woodwork, the bank building added dignity to the courthouse square. An abstract firm and land office occupied the upper floor. After drouth in its north Texas and Indian Territory trade areas, the bank failed in 1895. In 1906 W.I. Tidwell and son bought the property for a retail store. It was sold to W.A. Corbett in 1933 and to Mr. and Mrs. Rupert Roach in 1975. The lower front facade was last changed in the 1950s.
 
Erected 1976 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 156.)
