Looking to buy a new home or build your dream house? 

There’s a reason we’re first.

Since 1910, we’ve provided the people of Arkansas with a first-rate place to bank. Today, we operate in both Western Arkansas and Northwest Arkansas.

Why do people choose First Western? Because we have a reputation for delivering outstanding banking services in a warm, positive atmosphere. We’re a “one-stop shop” for financial services – and not just things like checking accounts, savings accounts and loans.

When you bank at First Western, you also show your hometown pride. Because when you bank here, your money stays in your community. We’re an independent bank owned by our employees.


Switch banks for the last time.
