Bank History

In 1932, a merger of the First National Bank of Russell and the Peoples Bank of Russell formed First & Peoples Bank. Starting with only seven employees and assets of $626,339.41, this new bank provided the citizens of Russell with a full service bank that could offer the financial services needed to benefit our community. Along with the growth of Russell as well as Greenup County, First & Peoples Bank also began to grow. As demands for services spread, new locations were added to make it convenient for our customers to have access to their bank, in their neighborhood. As technology increased, so did the Bank's services. Drive-thru facilities and Automated Teller Machines were just a few of the services that the Bank provided to the area to fulfill our full service committment.

In 1989, the Bank took another step in full service by becoming First & Peoples Bank and Trust Company. Our Trust Department opened in 1990 to provide our customers with a full range of trust products and services.

Our services have continued to grow in recent years. Image statements provide customers with a convenient way to monitor their account. Our Touch Tone Teller provides account information over the phone 24 hours a day. Finally, with internet service, customers can access their account, conduct transfers, look at check images, check the weather, and a host of other services from anywhere in the world.

We are proud to have been your locally owned, hometown bank since 1932. We are proud to have played a part in the tremendous growth of our community. Please join us as we continue our committment to serve our community into the new century.
