The First State National Bank

City/Town:
Location Class:
Year Built: 1940's | Year Abandoned: N/A
Status: Abandoned
Photojournalist: Michael Schwarz

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.

If you already have a home and want to buy a new one you can apply for this kind of loan. The tenure of this loan is really short and you have to mortgage that new house till the last day of repaying your bridge loans DC.

Some frosted glass is no longer made. This would be a wonderful salvage mine for someone who would make use of this good wood & glass.

This is a shame to be wasted. These materials and the workmanship need to be saved because when it's gone, it's gone.

What a waste . Whoever owns that building now needs to get in there and save that awesome woodwork, etc

Amity, Arkansas has one of these. However, it is well-maintained. Same woodwork and feel to it! The daughters of the original founder, the Olds sisters, set up a foundation many years ago that allows for the maintenance and upkeep of the building. It gets a paint job every so often, repairs when needed, etc. That's how you do preservation!
