West Plains Bank and Trust Company opened its doors to serve local financial needs in April 1883, the same year as the new brick courthouse was built and the railroad arrived in West Plains. With a state charter mandating community service and $15,000 in capital provided by a group of local investors, it became West Plains’s first state-regulated financial institution.
B.J. Olden was the new bank’s first chairman of the board, and R.S. “Uncle Bob” Hogan the first of seven presidents, followed by Ray Holt, Dr. R.E. Hogan, Carrick Davidson, Dan Gohn, S. David Gohn, and current president David M. Gohn, who succeeded his father in 2009.
In 1969, West Plains Bank became the first bank within a 100-mile radius to acquire computer services. The early ‘70s saw the opening of West Plains Bank Motor Bank (now Broadway Branch), their first drive-thru facility. By the time they celebrated their 100-year anniversary in 1983, total assets had grown to more than $53 Million and three branches.
As their financial base continued to grow, so did their services. In 1993, our first location outside West Plains opened when Liberty Branch was established to serve the banking needs of the Mountain View area.
Their name change to West Plains Bank and Trust Company in 1998 made trust services available to their customers through partnership with Trust Company of the Ozarks, now Simmons First Trust Company. In 2015, a Loan Center was opened in Mountain Home, Ark., to serve the loan needs of North Central Arkansas.
Now, with six locations, deposit-capable ATMs and mobile banking, West Plains Bank and Trust Company continues to lead the way with products and services designed to meet customer needs. Their efforts are focused on blending the latest in technology with personalized service.
Over the years, there have been numerous offers to sell or merge, but the bank has chosen to remain locally owned and managed. From those modest beginnings more than 130 years ago, total assets have grown to more than $340 Million, but the spirit of home-owned independence that guided the founders remains unchanged. They are dedicated to making sure Every Customer Leaves a Friend.
