Long Description:
NRHP Nomination Form

"This building was jointly occupied by the Plano National Bank and the lodge. On December 31, 1930, the Plano National Bank merged with the Farmers National Bank. A new bank, First National Bank opened in the building on January 2, 1931. First National Bank remained in this building until 1952, likely lured out of the district in response to Plano’s suburban growth. The IOOF lodge remained here until it was dissolved in 1982."
