Inscription.  The First National Bank was constructed in 1912 by contractors Westerman and Mitchell who had just remodeled the Pecos County Courthouse. The bank was established in 1910 as the rail fueled growth, but the bank failed during the Great Depression. The Pecos County State Bank operated the facility from 1935 through 1960. The building currently serves as the home of the Fort Stockton Police Department.
