Community National Bank in Monmouth is a Locally Owned Bank providing friendly and personalized service to the people and businesses in Monmouth, Illinois and the surrounding area.
We opened our doors for the first time on September 10, 1964. The founders felt the need for a bank that would serve the entire community from the family to the businessman. In fact, the original four hundred and fifty stockholders all lived in or had roots in the Monmouth area. As a result, in the beginning, as now, the Bank is for the community by the community.
The original location of the Bank was in a store front on the west side of the Square in Monmouth Illinois. From this humble location CNB began to serve the area. It was this willingness to serve the customer and the community that provided the base for the Bank's progress and success.
The city of Monmouth responded so well to the Bank's efforts, that plans for a new bank building were underway within a year. On July 5, 1966, CNB moved to its present location.
In 1964, bank assets amounted to two million dollars. At the end of 2004 our assets total over fifty-four million.
Setting aside historical facts and accomplishments, the key to the Bank's growth in the past and in the future will always be in its people. All of the Bank's assets: money, equipment and facilities would be useless without people who are sincerely interested in serving other people.
