The name of the Bank was changed from First National Bank to Yoakum National Bank in 1907. The bank has actually had 4 locations in its 115+ years. It started out in a rented building on West May Street for a short time. In 1894 the bank purchased a building on West Grand Avenue and later expanded to the building next door. In 1971 the bank moved into is current location at 301 West Grand Avenue.

The bank also endured the deregulation of the 1980’s and has achieved progress with the slow and steady growth of assets and consistent profits.
