The Bank of Kirksville began as the wishful dream of a group of men sitting in the back room of the Adair County Miner's Bank of Connelsville. They dreamed of a bank with friendly service, sound financial advice, and a mission to give back to the community around them. With these ideals in place the Bank of Kirksville was issued a state charter on Christmas Eve, 1913.
The bank took its first steps when it opened its doors on January 17, 1914 becoming the 5th bank operating in Kirksville. From the beginning, the Bank of Kirksville was closely tied to the surrounding community. The bank has always strived to offer the best service in the area and to evolve with the changing needs of the community. This dedication to our customers is reflected in the tremendous growth that the bank has seen since its inception.
The first Statement of Condition was published in October of 1914 and showed the total assets to be $214,298.18. By 1923 the bank's total assets had more than tripled totaling $678,644.30. By 1953 when the assets totaled $5,676,490.98 it was clear to everyone that the Bank of Kirksville was the leading bank in the area. Today the bank still holds true to the ideas on which it was founded and continues to grow and expand. In December 2017 the bank's total assets were $476,937,528 and the future only looks brighter.
Although the bank is continually growing to serve more and more people, you will never have to worry about being just a number. You will always get the benefits of a big city bank with the service of a small town friend.
