Greensburg State Bank in the Early Days On July 22, 1924 a new charter was granted for the Greensburg State Bank, at the request of a group of Greensburg businessmen who felt the need for a new bank in this growing new community. The first Board of Directors was:
  • L. E. Wait, President,
  • W. D. Eastman (an attorney)
  • Dr. J. A. McLaughlin (a physician)
  • L. M. Day (a judge)
  • John W. Davis (an attorney)
  • Charles H. Bissitt (an attorney)
The bank was ready to open for business in December 1924.Opening day deposits were $5,489.00 with a capital account of $25,000.00 A few days later F. V. Corns joined the staff as cashier and also became a member of the Board of Directors. F. V. moved to Greensburg from Norton, Kansas where he had been working as a railroad telegrapher for the Rock Island rail road. L. M. Day was hired as bookkeeper. L. M. and F. V. were the first employees of the bank. Drought and depression made banking difficult during the late 20's. F. V. Corns, Vice President and Cashier, was managing officer in those difficult times.

1944 was the bank's 20th year and that was the year that assets of the bank went over the $1,000,000.00 mark. Good crops and war times followed during the 1940's and by 1950 the assets were over $2,700,000. Robert V. Corns joined the bank staff as teller in 1948, after graduating from K State, working for Boeing and then serving in WWII.

An extensive remodeling project started in 1961 changed the inside and outside of the building. In 1972 the bank purchased computers and provided the customers with the most modern bookkeeping equipment available.

In 1975 Thomas V. Corns joined the bank as teller. Tom graduated from WSU and was vice-president of a bank in New Mexico before returning home to work in the family bank. Christmas In 1989 the bank relocated to a modern new facility with seven private offices, a board room, drive up facility, large state-of-the-art vault and spacious lobby area. The bank continues to be locally owned and still offers the personal accomodating service that comes from "hometown people" working hard to serve their "neighbors and friends."
