Our Story

Staying in business for more than 125 years is hard. Really hard. If you think about it, we’ve endured many events, like the Great Depression and two World Wars. We’ve survived and thrived, thanks to our great customers and communities. We were founded on core values of accountability, community service and financial conservatism. Those principles are the reason we are still in business today. Caring for people and communities is our foundation! 

We’ve built a reputation of being financially secure and community focused. We are an independent community bank and fully intend to stay that way. We are big enough to accommodate any financial need, yet small enough to give every customer the personal treatment they deserve.

Our Roots

On November 2, 1891, we received our state charter. Then named The Bank of Perryville, we were the only bank in Perry County, Missouri. As other banks began to organize, we continued to enjoy steady growth. For over 100 years, we operated out of a single Perryville branch. Then in 1997, we changed our name to The Bank of Missouri and expanded into Cape Girardeau, Missouri. We continued to grow over the next several years, expanding into cities throughout Missouri. Today, we operate more than 20 branches and have more than $1 billion in assets.
