FNB: Our Hometown History
The history of Fort Smith is largely the story of the First National Bank.
The history of any town is but a record of the achievement of its people. While Fort Smith was founded in 1817, it was not until 1872, the date of the organization of this bank, that the town began to assume a position in the commercial world.
Under the leadership of several generations, The First National Bank of Fort Smith has grown to be the largest in Fort Smith and one of the largest banks in the state.
