A Legacy of Community Banking Success

The First National Bank of Hughes Springs is a family- owned bank first formed in Hughes Springs, Texas, serving customers throughout the region.

FNB was established in 1903 in Hughes Springs by W.B. Duncan, a businessman from nearby Avinger. In 1907 Roy Kasling joined the bank and would go on to become its president.

One hundred- plus years and two generations later, Roy Kasling's grandson Mayo Kasling, Jr. is CEO of a dynamic bank that has grown tremendously through the years.

Today, FNB offers its customers 16 locations across Texas and a full complement of financial tools to help those customers achieve their goals. Bank officials and employees take pride in being a part of the communities around them, and in offering a level of friendly, small-town banking not found anywhere else.

“I've always believed that if you take care of your community, the people of the community will take care of you," Kasling said. "Our number one priority will continue to be making the towns where we live and work better for everyone.”

In FNB's early years the local economy was centered on farming and cotton, though gradually the timber industry began to grow. But farm equipment progressed and business in East Texas shifted first toward timber and livestock, then industry.

The common thread?

The First National Bank of Hughes Springs, and its capacity to change through the years to constantly meet its customers' needs.

FNB continues to use that flexibility to adapt to the ever- changing financial climate of a new century, always with the interests of hometown residents in mind. Stop by one of our branches to see what our family can do for yours, and to discover the difference community banking can make.

"Community banking is about forming and maintaining strong relationships," FNB President Bill Lindsey said. "We want to help our customers reach all of their goals, and we'll stand beside them on that journey."
