Legend Bank Announces Update on New Full-Service Bonham Branch Construction

JUNE 20, BONHAM: Legend Bank is proud to announce an update on their new, full-service branch construction in downtown Bonham at 502 North Center Street. The bank location was originally built over 60 years ago when it opened as Bonham State Bank’s new office in 1960. Legend Bank’s branch manager, Carolyn Stroud, has been serving customers from this location for 43 years.

Legend Bank has announced their plans to re-build their downtown branch to preserve their history and connection to downtown Bonham. They have been working closely with their architects to ensure the new bank location maintains the heritage of downtown Bonham and preserves the important history of the courthouse and downtown square area.

Plans for the new Legend Bank branch are near-final and over the next 90 days they will be preparing to move from their current downtown branch to their temporary location at 2228 North Center Street in Bonham, next to the Legend Bank Convenience Center, at 2232 N. Center Street. Customers will be served by the same friendly bankers at the temporary location and at the Bonham Convenience Center while the new branch is under construction.

“I am proud to have served Bonham customers from this location for so many years. Our customers are so very important to us, and we are so excited to share the plans for our new full-service branch. It will be a beautiful tribute to this community.” said Carolyn Stroud, Legend Bank Bonham Branch Manager, AVP. “We are thankful that we will have a conveniently located temporary branch to provide the banking services they need next door to our Convenience Center. Plus, we will be introducing new convenient banking technologies during this transition that will help our customers as well. While we look forward to our new building construction, we know change can be hard sometimes. I want to reassure customers that our bankers are here to help and make banking as easy as possible during construction. Please reach out to us if you have questions about this transition.”

The Bank has released a rendering of the new location to give Bonham customers a feeling of the planned new Bonham branch. During construction, the current branch location in downtown will be closed and the building will be demolished. New branch construction will begin in that same location in downtown Bonham. The Bank will be using materials to reinforce the downtown Bonham history including brick and stonework, details, and colors that will provide extraordinary curb appeal and will complement the downtown area.

“Preserving our connection to the Bonham community and the downtown square is a priority for us as we design our new full-service location. We want our customers to be proud of the impact we are making in the downtown area to align with the revitalization work done on the Bonham courthouse,” said Garrett Amlin, Bonham Branch President, SVP. “When our new Bonham branch building is open to serve customers after construction is complete, we will be able to provide all of our banking services from our one downtown location offering customers a premiere location with lobby services for personal, business, commercial and mortgage services along with drive-thru banking, ATM and electronic banking services.”

Legend Bank will share more information as plans develop and they prepare for construction. Please check their website at for updated information. They also encourage safe deposit customers to reach out to their bankers to discuss their options during construction of the new branch. They would like to thank customers in advance for their patience during the construction and move to the temporary location.
