Hometown Banking...tradition you can count on!
In 1934 River Town Bank opened under the name of Bank of Dardanelle. Under the leadership of local, hometown bankers, the bank has grown to include branch offices in Dardanelle, Russellville, Danville, Atkins, Dover, and Conway, Arkansas.
On August 14, 2006 Bank of Dardanelle changed its name to River Town Bank. Although the name changed, the bank has continued to be one of the few locally owned and operated banks in the area. This name change reflects the banks commitment to ensure quality service to all communities in our service area, regardless of the location.
The stability of the Board of Directors, bank management, and other members of the bank family has contributed greatly to the growth and profitability of the bank. The Board of Directors is composed of a solid group of forward thinking, local community members.
Our diversified Board of Directors includes business professionals, a school teacher, community leaders, representatives of the retired community, and emerging leaders. Most members of our Board of Directors also have close family ties that extend to the founders of the bank. This strong heritage has ensured that the bank has remained true to our original goals of providing quality banking services tailored for the local community.
Many members of the Board of Directors also work in the bank on a daily basis. This close oversight has helped make sure that the bank retains that small bank feel that is important to everyone.
All of our loan decisions are made by local people that understand your needs, your particular circumstances, and they are probably your neighbors.
