Regarding Crittenden Bank & Trust Company. As the county and its businesses began to prosper, banks provided a depository for monies and a source for needed capital for new businesses and homes. Unfortunately, many of the early banks failed. Of the four banking institutions which operated in this building, only one, Citizens Bank, survived. It moved in 1956 into the building operated today as the Marion City Hall, and later into another building at the corner of Pine and Block streets. Citizens Bank was merged with National Bank of Commerce of Memphis, Tennessee in 1999.
