First bank building: Jacksboro, Texas

 The historical marker has all the information about this building that I have been able to locate so far.  This was the first bank in Jacksboro, Texas.  I think I may be about to buy my first architecture book, though, as I discovered a thrilling find on architecture in Texas from 1895-1945!
I had family (on my mother's side) who lived in Jacksboro, so as soon as I can, I will also go through the family photos.  Who knows, I might find a c.1940-1968 photo of some of the downtown buildings.  Meanwhile, perhaps I can discover more about the buildings that surround the square.

For an update on the Jack County courthouse posting of a few days ago, go here.
