Citizens National Bank

-A A +A
1927. 114 S. Rogers St.

This three-story terra-cotta-clad building with a gray granite base is richly classical. The first floor is composed of a central, two-story-tall round-arched entrance that is bracketed with smaller rectangular windows, and an egg-and-dart stringcourse defines the upper floor, where paired windows stand beneath a three-band entablature.

Adjacent blocks in Waxahachie’s historic downtown contain many turn-of-the-twentieth-century two-story commercial buildings that freely blend Romanesque Revival and Italianate features. With their handsomely detailed brick masonry with limestone or sandstone trim they make lively streetscapes.
