About Us

Community First National Bank of West Plains opened its doors as a national bank on November 13, 1997 with over 45 local investors. Our bank has expanded to three locations across the Ozarks and now serves the communities of West Plains, MO in Howell County, Mountain Grove, MO in Wright County and Thayer, MO in Oregon County.

In December of 2009, we converted our bank charter from a national bank to a state bank, bringing Community First Banking Company to the local level without compromising our ownership, management or employees.

A thirteen member Board of Directors along with an experienced staff of Officers and Employees provide local management and full service banking opportunities for customers in south central Missouri.
