Legend Bank, Independent Bank logos. information for Whitewright Independent Bank Customers.

Welcome To Legend Bank. You may have seen our announcement on April 15, 2019 regarding our agreement to acquire Independent Bank’s Whitewright location. We are very excited to welcome you to our family as a new customer later this summer. I hope you’ll find that Legend Bank is a different kind of banking partner and we hope you’ll enjoy banking with us.
We have a 129 year history of serving customers with the utmost integrity, care and concern. Our service began when we opened our doors as the first bank in Bowie, Texas in 1890. We were founded to serve our local communities and small businesses. We feel our bank, and community banks like us, are the foundation of growth and economic prosperity in this country.

Our 129 year history is a wonderful past ingrained in the philosophy that service to others is a privilege.
