Hard at Work in Texas

Bank of America began serving Texas almost 100 years ago. First Republic National Bank opened its doors in Dallas in 1920 and grew in popularity by offering extended banking hours. It built relationships with oil producers and became the largest bank in Texas in 1948. First Republic entered the Bank of America family when North Carolina National Bank acquired it in 1989. Today, Bank of America is one of the nation’s largest financial institutions and provides services to half of all American households.
