The City National Bank was a bank and is also the name of its historic building in Galveston, Texas. The bank was founded in December 1907 by W.L. Moody; the building was built during 1919-20.:16
The City National Bank became the Moody National Bank. The downtown building is now the Galveston County Historical Museum.
The building was listed on the National Register as part of a collection covered in a study of the city's historic resources.
The Moody family also built the Medical Arts Building (1927-29), and the Jean Lafitte Hotel (1927), among the biggest structures in Galveston, and the latter also NRHP-listed. And in the same block as the City National Bank is the U.S. National Bank (1923-25), an Italian Renaissance 11-story skyscraper building that is an "interesting contrast" architecturally, and was also listed in the study.
