The Union Bank's History
The Union Bank was established on Saturday, September 3, 1910
"When we opened our doors that morning, we had a capital stock of $25,000."
For more than 100 years, people and businesses from around have depended on The Union Bank to help ensure the quality and safety of their finances.
Whether you are a new or longtime customer – you are not just a Union Bank customer; you are our friend and neighbor. By taking the extra time to get to know you, we are better able to serve your needs. We are a full service, locally owned and operated community-oriented institution. With roots in Central Louisiana for more than a century, our relationships with our customers, employees, and shareholders run deep.
During the Stock Market crash and the Great Depression of the later 1920's, The Union Bank survived and even flourished.
In 1935, The Union Bank absorbed the Marksville branch of the Avoyelles Trust and Savings Bank of Bunkie, Louisiana. By 1941, there were three banks left in the parish of Avoyelles.
