About First National Bank of Clinton
First National Bank of Clinton was chartered December 7th, 1945 by a group of local citizens who felt that a bank in town with a national charter was important. In those days, obtaining a new bank charter was a difficult, if not impossible, accomplishment. Local businessman, M.K.
