First National Bank

 

  • The First National Bank of Dickson was chartered on August 19, 1903, with capital of $25,000.00 and 23 subscribers. 

 

  • In 1920, the bank outgrew its quarters and purchased the grocery next door, which was remodeled into a two-story building with an impressive columned front of Indiana cut stone and an inside balcony, topped with a carved wooden American eagle; all are intact today. The building is now used as county government offices.
