A long-time fixture of downtown Brenham is leaving.

The original St. Anthony Hotel (circa 1920)

The local branch for Capital One Bank at the corner of Market and Main in Brenham will be closing.

The move is part of an ongoing consolidation of its banking network.

In a letter sent to account holders, bank officials say its local branch and ATM machine will close permanently at noon on Saturday, Nov. 18.

After that date, account holders in the Brenham area will have to do business at another Capital One Bank location. The closest branches are located in Weimar, Schulenburg and Columbus.

The current location of Capital One was originally the site of the St. Anthony Hotel for many years.

In 1960, South Central Savings & Loan opened up a branch which became Guardian Savings then Coastal Bank before eventually housing Capital One
