For the banking institution, this is like coming home. Sabrina Miguez, CEO of Port Arthur Community FCU, said the credit union got its start in 1950 in the downtown area and spent a number of years operating out of the basement of City Hall.

The business moved to a location on Twin City Highway, then built its current location on Central Mall Drive in 2007.
