First Peoples Bank was organized by several business people of Harris County who had the foresight and vision to see that a community bank was much needed in our area. On December 31, 1987 First Peoples Bank was granted a charter by the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance, to raise three million dollars in capital.
The Bank opened for business on July 9, 1990 with fifteen employees. Today the First Peoples family has grown to thirty six employees. The Bank's main office is located in Pine Mountain, GA and we also have a branch in Hamilton, GA. Our mortgage division is located in LaGrange, GA.
First Peoples Bank is the areas only home-owned and operated bank dedicated to serving the needs of our community. The Bank continues to prosper and grow as we add professional employees, explore new technology, expand our markets, and maintain a level of service that is untouchable.
Our mission statement is to provide our customers high quality, professional financial services in a competitive, ever-changing market. We will accomplish this through a qualified family of professionals, who desire to assist our customers at a level higher than the customer expects. Providing this level of customer service will enable First Peoples Bank to improve our community by being a good corporate citizen and maximize our shareholders' return.
