WEST, Texas (KWTX) A bank in West is celebrating 125 years with $125 donations and a priceless new piece of art.

POINTWEST Bank celebrated its 125th anniversary Friday by unveiling a large mural that highlights all things ‘West’ from WestFest, Czech heritage and polka, to the community’s more tragic history with a special square promising to never forget those killed in the West Fertilizer Co. Explosion on April 17, 2013.

K. Dunks Creative commissioned the artwork.

Bank officials encouraged people to come take pictures in front of the mural at 215 Washington Street and post the photos using #PWBCommunityMatters.

After the unveiling, the bank presented several West organizations with checks including West EMS, West Fire, and West Police.

Over its 125 years, POINTWEST Bank has grown to serve communities beyond West by opening additional branches in Hewitt and China Spring.
