Reese Building (First National Bank)

-A A +A
First National Bank
1949, Sam H. Dixon Jr. 834 3rd St.

Minimal architectural features imbue this two-story, corner bank and office building with inherent distinction. Dixon, a Houston architect, remodeled an existing building with horizontal belt courses that frame the sills and heads of second-floor windows and large-scaled flutes at the top of the wall, which provide a modernistic frieze.
