2019 Business of the Month of August!
Congratulations to Paris School District, for being voted as the
Business of the Month for July 2019.
First National Bank of Paris is well-deserving of the Business of the Month Award for August.
They're always involved in community events and promoting progression in Paris.
First National Bank of Paris became a National Bank in February of 1920, and was reorganized in 1934 as the First National Bank at Paris.
The First National Bank at Paris was established in 1891 as The Bank of Paris by a group of local businessmen who had a deep commitment to the people of Paris and Logan County. At that time, Paris was a bustling community of 600 people. Founded by W.R. Cherry, the bank occupied the first floor of the two-story native stone Hall Building on the southwest corner of the city square. According to "old timers," in front of this corner passed all covered wagons on their way to Texas and back.
First National Bank of Paris is the 2nd oldest business in Paris; and the 124th in the State of Arkansas!
Plenty to do in Paris!
