LONGVIEW, Texas — VeraBank expects its presence to continue growing in downtown Longview, with more than $1.5 million in renovations underway at its building at Tyler and Fredonia streets.

The Henderson-based bank also will soon begin exterior renovations at what is currently the Longview Museum of Fine Arts and the parking garage next door. VeraBank owns both facilities, with the art museum expected to move into its new downtown home within a couple of years.

Brad Tidwell, VeraBank's president and CEO, said the bank moved into the 10-story building about 10 years ago, first as a tenant, but VeraBank has since purchased what is the tallest building in downtown Longview.
