The Hondo National Bank originated in 1901 with the chartering of the First National Bank of Hondo, which was located on Avenue M. The Hondo State Bank opened in 1906 at the same location. In 1936 the two banks merged into a new chartered bank called The Hondo National Bank with total capital of $60,000. On November 31, 1950, the bank moved to its new quarters on 18th Street. The bank has operated continuously since the inception of the two banks in the early 1900’s and weathered the "Great Depression," as well as the "Banking Crisis of the 1980s."
A single office operated in Hondo until branch banking was permitted in Texas. In 1998 the bank’s Bandera Branch was established, in 2003 the Uvalde Branch was opened, and in 2006 the Leakey Branch was opened. Significant growth has been experienced during the last few years due to a concerted marketing effort and the influx of people into the area west of San Antonio. The bank has more than tripled its size during the last ten years.
Automatic Teller Machines are located in Hondo, Bandera, Uvalde, and Leakey.
