The First, headquartered in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, began as a dream on a back porch in South Mississippi.
A group of local businessmen talked about creating a bank that would take care of business by taking care of people one customer at a time... and The First was born. Now, that dream has grown from a back porch to cities and towns all over South Mississippi, South Alabama, Louisiana, Florida and Georgia. The First is more than a bank... because it is still a group of friends building relationships and taking care of business one customer at a time! The First currently has over 85 locations.
The First, Just the Bank for You!
