The State National Bank in Foreman, Arkansas first opened in the mid 40s and had several branches across the state. after World War II, the state national bank also opened up locations in Ashdown and several locations in Texarkana. In 1966 the name changed to State First National Bank after closing a few of their branches. The foreman bank operated until an unknown date (likely somewhere in the late 80s or early 90s.)
Today the bank is completely abandoned and looks just as it did when it closed. The well-known “1800s” style architecture often seen in western movies complements the town along with its beautiful history. It has a very exquisite safe with a big door still inside today.
