During the early 1930s, bank robberies were quite frequent.  The famous criminal couple "Bonnie and Clyde" robbed stores in Baxt, er Springs, and it is said they robbed the Baxter State bank as well.

The Masons were also located on the upper floor of the original bank.  Notice the Mason emblem above the doorway on the right in this photo.  There isn't a door there; the entrance leads to a stairway.
