The first cashier of the Bank of Leasburg was James N. Smith; Luther A. Evans became cashier in October 1906 and served for several years.
For a few years after the financial crisis of 1929, the Crawford County seat of Steelville, Missouri did not have a bank of its own. The citizens of the town soon realized that for a community to grow and prosper, it needed a bank of its own. On October 2, 1934, the Bank was moved to Steelville, Missouri, and the name changed to Community Bank. C.M. Fitzgerald became the President of the new Community Bank. Following Mr. Fitzgerald was W.A. McInnis who served as President from the mid 1940s to 1956.
In 1960, the Community Bank built a new banking facility on Main Street in Steelville under the leadership of E.W. Gravatt, who was Director and President from 1956 to 1961. In 1961, the role of President was turned over to L.J. “Tick” Perkins. Mr. Perkins remained the CEO & President until 1976 when the family operation was turned over to his son, Paul E. Perkins. In 1979, the Community Bank moved down the street to its current location at 402 W. Main Street in Steelville.
On February 1, 1983, the bank’s name changed to First Community National Bank of Crawford County as a result of the plans to open a second location in Cuba, Missouri. At that time, the bank also changed from a state chartered bank to a national chartered bank. In 1984, the Cuba Financial Center was opened and then remodeled and expanded in 2005.
With further expansion, the bank’s name changed to First Community National Bank when they acquired the Boatmen’s Community Federal in Sullivan and opened the Sullivan Financial Center in 1991. In 1997, the Vienna Financial Center was opened followed by the Rolla North Financial Center in 2002. In 2005, First Community National Bank opened its sixth location in Eureka, Missouri. The construction of a new, permanent facility was completed in July 2009. FCNB's seventh location, a second branch in Rolla opened in 2007. Future plans include a FCNB Financial Center location in Union, MO.
Today, First Community National Bank remains a strong presence in the Steelville, Cuba, Sullivan, Vienna, Rolla and Eureka communities. Under the current leadership of President Scott Perkins, First Community National Bank continues to thrive as a strong and progressive independent, community bank.
