    The Old Citizens National Bank Building
    1 more image

    We soaked up the mild temperatures and sunshine as we continued with the official walking tour of Waxahachie. It gave some needed direction to our wandering!

    As we plodded up the sidewalk, this massive Romanesque building with the carved stone capitals appeared. It's the old Citizens National Bank (1895).

    This style is characterized by sturdy arches and square towers, but the tower to this building was removed years ago. A balcony to the side of the building has a carved lion bas relief, which was greatly in need of repair.

    This building looks like the perfect design for a bank--it has an appearance of strength and durability.

    1905 Citizens National Bank

    by VeronicaG Updated Mar 12, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Waxahachie boasts two old Citizens National Bank buildings--this being the later one constructed in 1905 and comprised of white sandstone.

    Look at the nicely detailed fanlight over the entrance. Also, to the left of the photo, you'll see an awning supported by iron scrollwork. Below the top story of windows, there runs a Greek frieze and egg and dart cornice molding.

    I think this is an impressive looking building. Wouldn't you feel confident stashing your money here? It's designed in the Neoclassic style.
