In 2017, American Bank’s Centennial year, will mark a century of commitment and service. In 1917, when American Bank was established, the United States was in the midst of “The Great War”. In the 30’s the mother road “Route 66” set path through Baxter Springs and the painful recovery from the Great Depression slowly crawled—American Bank was there. In 1941, our country was thrown into the horrors of World War II. American Bank was there with the greatest generation. American Bank rocketed as America’s space program took mankind to other worlds. American Bank watched as TV aerials turned to cable and satellite dishes. Our phones once dialed, now the phones interact around the world. Always here, American Bank; Customer Oriented and Community Involved.
In 1995 Paula Collins, of Denton, Texas, designed a sculpture depicting a number of aspects spanning more than 100 years of the heritage of Baxter Springs. This beautiful mural is on the side of our building at our main location in downtown Baxter Springs. Come by and view this wonderful work of art!
