By June 23, 2020 No Comments

Meyer J. Rachofsky was the Vice President of Mercantile National Bank. Mr. Rachofsky was also the treasurer of Golden Acres, as seen in the October 17, 1957 Texas Jewish Post Newspaper.

The Mercantile National Bank is well known for its iconic building located on Main Street in Downtown Dallas. The building was completed in 1943, and it was the only major skyscraper built during World War II. It was also the tallest building west of the Mississippi River for over a decade. The building, now called The Merc, is currently home to many people as it was converted into an apartment building.
