Throughout First National Bank’s 125 year history our purpose has been to provide our community with quality banking service. First National Bank began in northeast Arkansas as the Bank of Paragould in 1889. In 1903 the bank was granted a national bank charter. FNB expanded to the Corning area in 1984, into Jonesboro in 1998, and our Piggott office opened in 2013. In 2014 we opened branches in the Arkansas cities of Rogers and Heber Springs. We plan to open an office in Bentonville in January 2015. The purpose of our growth is to reach more people with sound community banking service.
One significant factor in our growth has come through client referrals. Each year thousands of new customers choose to begin a relationship with us through the Tell-A-Friend program. This is a positive indicator of the excellent service provided by our employees. We appreciate our customers recommending First National Bank to their friends.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ranked First National Bank as the 13th largest Arkansas based bank as of December 31, 2013 (as ranked by assets) (Source: Arkansas Business magazine, May 2014) with total assets of 745 million dollars.
But banking is about more than dollars and cents. It's also about trusted relationships. We urge you to call or come in to one of our local branches to speak to a one of our Lenders or Customer Service Representative's. We're ready to work for you!
