Newly restored Baird historic landmark will hold an open house on Friday, July 28

BAIRD, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - The owners of a newly restored Baird historic landmark are inviting everyone out to an open house and ribbon cutting.

Renovation and restoration of the historic Home National Bank Building in Baird, Texas has completed, and the owners would like to invite everyone out to an open house on Friday, July 28 at 6 p.m. The building is located at 201 Market Street in Baird.

First opened in 1908, the building served as a bank until the Great Depression. The building has since served a number of purposes including retail stores, a post office, doctors and lawyers offices, and a Red Cross branch. The Honorable Judge Ely even had a corner office at one point. Locals probably know the building best as the longtime office of dentist Dr. Carrol McGowen.

The building was purchased by Seth and Rene Goldsmith in 2014, but renovations did not begin until early 2017.

The upstairs has been turned into Lone Star Hall, a venue with seating for 80 plus people. The west end has been transformed into the Lone Star Lodge, a bed and breakfast with accommodations for up to 6 guests. The original bank portion has become a retail store space.

The building still features all original wood floors, shiplap and brick and plaster walls. The original tin ceiling, mosaic tile floor and walk-in vaults were also retained from the original bank portion of the building.

Everyone is invited to come and tour this newly restored Baird historic land mark.
