When you bank here, you're going to notice something special. You'll be treated like family, because around here, work and family go hand-in-hand. Established in 1909, we're a local, hometown bank with nearly 30 locations across Oklahoma and Arkansas. We live and work in the communities we serve. Like a family, we support you through the hardships, and we help you build on the successes. Because we're a true community bank, our goal is to help you -- our neighbors, friends, families, and local businesses -- succeed. 
After all, a stronger community means a better life for all. 

Our Story

Our History 

We were born in 1909, right after statehood, in Vian, Oklahoma. A few years later, the Armstrong family became our owners and set the course for our future. Family members still comprise the majority of our Board of Directors today. And family values are woven into our culture. So, when you bank here, you become part of the family, too. For more than 100 years, we have worked extra hard to help our customers achieve their dreams. We've created solutions. We've gone above and beyond to serve our communities. We've invested right where we live, working alongside other local businesses, friends, and neighbors. 

We weathered the Great Depression and stayed strong through the Great Recession of 2008. Over the years. we've continued to grow adding locations throughout Oklahoma and Arkansas. Today, we're one of the strongest community banks in the country. We embody excellence and strive for the best in everything we do. Our family-focused values provide a foundation of stability and a framework for future growth.

We're more than a century strong, and family is the reason. 

Our Mission

We make it our mission to be the bank we'd recommend to family... to help our friends, neighbors, and communities build a strong future through smart and dependable banking services.
