History

TPNB Bank
A Subsidiary of Paris Bancshares, Inc.
Locally Owned and Operated since 1865

While the county was involved in the Civil War, local investors in Paris, Missouri came together and formed a bank that would have a profound impact on future generations in Monroe County.

Chartered in 1865, the bank was named The Paris National Bank and was the only national bank in the county of Monroe. In the beginning, bank ownership was in the hands of a few local investors, but in time, the stock became more widely dispersed.

For more than one hundred years, The Paris National Bank played a major role in this central Missouri community, known as the “friendliest town in Little Dixie”. There is a sense of pride the people of Paris hold in their community and in their bank. Paris provides that small town atmosphere in which neighbors can become friends and families can plant deep roots.

Over the years, the bank has helped residents establish those roots through its primary mission of serving the banking needs of the people of Paris and surrounding communities. The bank has earned a well-deserved reputation for quality service and conservative soundness.

Agricultural lending remains a major contribution of the bank. Consumer, home, and business loans are also provided, in addition to telephone, internet and mobile banking, ATM services, a variety of checking accounts, and a bank club account.

The bank has been located at 118 North Main Street since 1965. Previously the bank was located in the Main Street Building on the corner of Monroe and Main Streets. In 1999 the bank completed a major renovation to include the addition of a drive-up teller window and expansion of the bank’s loan department.

In January, 2017, the bank opened a new chapter by evolving from a national bank to a state-chartered institution with the accompanying name change to TPNB Bank.  The bank will remain under the same leadership and continue to provide the excellent service that its customers deserve and expect.  The bank continues to make technological advances to remain positioned to provide banking services to current and future genereations in the area.  The bank's staff encourages you to visit the bank and discover the ways in which TPNB Bank offers up-to-date services in a friendly, hometown-style manner.
