Our History


Most banks have branches. First Peoples Bank has roots… roots in the communities we serve. From the tellers, to the bank president… everyone at First Peoples Bank makes an effort to get to know YOU, the customer. First Peoples Bank takes care of you and your financial needs, both personal and professional. First Peoples Bank: “local people who really do make a difference.”


First Peoples Bank was organized in 1974 and opened for business January 2, 1975, as First Peoples Bank of Jefferson County, with a total of six employees. The bank operated in a portable building until it moved into its present Jefferson City office in May 1976. First Peoples Bank is the oldest bank in Jefferson County. In early 1994, First Peoples Bank of Jefferson County officially changed its name to First Peoples Bank of Tennessee.


First Peoples Bank was organized to meet the banking needs of the “people,” as our name implies. We are a bank based on relationship banking offering you, our customer, a vast array of financial products and services, ranging from competitive rates on your deposits, to loans individually tailored to meet your needs.
