IBAT History

IBAT has worked to capture and preserve the rich history of community banking spanning the transformation of Texas from a rural and ranching state, to a metropolitan global center. The community banks of Texas have provided small business and consumers a resourceful platform that enabled growth in many ways.
Individuals who are interested in Texas history may designate contributions and endowed funds toward preserving the story of community banking.
