Our History & Mural

Our History

The arrival of the railroad in Bastrop during the 1880s injected a fresh spirit of progress in the community. This economic upswing opened the way for three forward thinking venture capitalists to open Bastrop County Bank, which was soon bought out by local business men and renamed The First National Bank of Bastrop in August of 1889.

Throughout the following centuries, First National Bank played an integral role serving the community as Bastrop County experienced incredible development. We have continued to grow alongside Bastrop, opening new branches throughout the years: Highway 71, Elgin, Smithville, Cedar Creek, and Downtown Bastrop.

Today, we continue to serve our part of the world faithfully, being actively involved in the communities where we work, live, and raise our families. We take pride in our reputation for providing both ‘high tech’ and ‘high touch’ customer service that has helped us become one of the largest locally owned and independent community banks in the Austin Area.

Since 1889, we have generously applied the Golden Rule to all our dealings, and we hope to exceed your expectations for a bank. Whether you need a loan or financial advice, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
