Inscription.  Chartered on Feb. 27, 1901, the First National Bank of Killeen is the oldest continuously operated bank in Bell County. It first served a primarily agricultural economy, but as Killeen began to develop the bank led in the town's dramatic growth. Its merger with Jewelers Bank, a private financial Institution, in 1904 and its 1934 consolidation with the First State Bank of Killeen were instrumental in the bank's early progress. Later growth was a result of the institution's innovations and its commitment to the community.
