Marker Text The First National Bank of Breckenridge was organized in 1904, when Stephens County was primarily a farming and ranching area. The financial institution moved its headquarters to this building following its completion in 1920, during the height of the area oil boom. The Beaux Arts Classical Revival structure, which features Ionic columns and bracketed architecture over the doorway, served as the First National Bank building until 1972.
