Our History

In the beginning

Security Bank was founded in 1928 in the city of McCamey, Texas, at the onset of the Great Depression. At that time, a group of local investors realized a vision to help McCamey and the surrounding community overcome what was clearly one of the most tumultuous times in the history of the United States economy. Security Bank withstood the instability of that era and proved to be an institution of compassion, character and tenacity. Since then, the bank has continued to endure the changes the market has incurred. It remains one of the oldest financial institutions in West Texas and perhaps the state.
