YOU first is how we do business. Getting to know you on a First-Name Basis allows us to provide you with an excellent banking experience. Since we live right here in Arkansas, we understand the aspirations of the people here. Our experienced lenders welcome the opportunity to talk with you about your plans and dreams. We're eager to invest in every community we call home by making local loans for many purposes including: personal, business, agricultural and mortgage. Our mission today is the same as it was in 1889: to grow with our customers.
We're also working to promote growth in our communities. First National Bank now has offices in the Arkansas cities of: Little Rock, Jonesboro, Paragould, Rogers, Bentonville, Fayetteville, Springdale, Heber Springs, Corning and Piggott. In each of our 20 offices, our friendly bankers are eager to listen to you as we deliver quality banking service.
FNB began as the Bank of Paragould in March 1889. In 1903 the bank was granted a national bank charter and our name was changed to First National Bank. FNB now has 3 branches in Paragould. Our first expansion outside of Paragould was in 1984 into Corning. Our first Jonesboro office was begun in 1998 and today FNB has three branches in Jonesboro.
In 2013 FNB opened our Piggott office. In 2014 we opened offices in Heber Springs and in Rogers. In 2015 First National Bank added 4 new branches in the Northwest Arkansas cities of: Bentonville, Fayetteville and Springdale. August 2018 saw the addition of five bank offices in Little Rock and one in North Little Rock. The purpose of our growth is to reach more people with our sound community banking service.
Growth is also vital for both our customers and our community. First National Bank has grown to over 1.6 billion dollars in total assets. But we understand that banking is about more than dollars and cents. It's primarily about trusted relationships. A significant impetus for growth has come through client referrals. We appreciate the thousands of our customers who have recommended FNB to their friends and family. Ask a Customer Service Representative about how you too can be rewarded through our customer referral rewards program. Contact us soon!
