History

In 1902, five years before Oklahoma statehood, Broken Arrow wasn't too impressive. In fact, the village was described as being little more than a patch of blue sky under which a few tents had been stretched; however, it was being called home by what is now the oldest hometown bank in Tulsa County.

Opened in 1902, and known originally as Traders and Planters Bank, the institution was chartered as the First National Bank on January 29, 1904. Among the original incorporators were F. S. Hurd, its founder, and Kansas Senator Charles Curtis, a native Cherokee who would later serve as Vice President of the United States in the Herbert Hoover administration.

Since those early days, the strength of First National Bank has come from two cornerstones. The first is an uptown style that is reflected in the thoroughly professional approach the bank emulates in all aspects of its work. The other is the down-home style that allows these products and services to be delivered with warmth that makes every customer feel right at home. Both are illustrated in more than a century's worth of performance.

Today, that heritage of commitment continues in all parts of the community. It is seen in the involvement of First People in a wide assortment of civic, professional, and charitable organizations. It is seen in the bank's continuing leadership role in key community activities, and it is especially apparent in First National's unwavering support of the Broken Arrow School System and its role as a Partner in Education.
