Tyler Landmark Earns Historical Status

People’s Petroleum Building, Facebook

As you drive by the old People’s National Bank Building in Tyler you can look at it fondly now as a Tyler Historic Landmark. The designation became official in a ceremony yesterday as part of National Historic Preservation Month.

The building that’s now the People’s Petroleum Building went up in 1932, and claimed to be the tallest building in East Texas at the time, and the largest skyscraper construction project west of the Mississippi River.

Renovation projects that could take years to complete are in the works now, and the building’s owners are keeping us updated on Facebook.

There are no plans to rip out the original marble, or make other changes that might compromise the historic integrity of the building during the renovations, and they’ll keep the history in mind all the way down to the light fixtures.

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
