Lubbock National Bank - Roger Karr
Lubbock National Bank is part of a local, family-owned banking legacy that has been serving the people of this area since 1892, when the first settlers began arriving in the South Plains and Texas Panhandle.
We introduced ourselves to Lubbock just a few years after the city was incorporated. Back then we went by a different name—Security State Bank and Trust Company—and opened for business right in the middle of downtown, at the intersection of Main Street and Texas Avenue. Our founders had a passion for helping the people and small businesses that were essential to Lubbock’s story.
By the time Texas Tech opened in 1925, the city was on its way to a population of 30,000 people, becoming the unofficial capital of the South Plains. That year, we changed our charter to Lubbock National Bank. As our city continued to grow, so did LNB. Before long, we had built multiple branches throughout the city and were headquartered in the eight-story LNB building downtown, not far from the location where we launched more than a century ago.
We began extending our reach outside of Lubbock in 1999 to serve customers in Central Texas, including Austin and College Station, and later Downtown Fort Worth in 2013. Then, in early 2019, we were given the opportunity to expand our focus on community service by merging with Amarillo National Bank. The largest family-owned bank in the United States, ANB has been serving the people of the High Plains for 130 years. That’s our legacy.
Today, Lubbock National continues to focus on the neighbors and local businesses that are so central to our story. We are here for you, Lubbock.
