Banking History In Maysville

About the time of the Civil war the firm of Pearce & Wallingford was established and a few years later, on the liquidation of the Farmers' Branch, its business was absorbed into the firm of Pearce, Wallingford & Company, — a business which subsequently was incorporated into the State National Rank, which is still conducted by some of the same interests. About the year 1870 the firm of
Wells, Mitchell & Company was established by a number of gentlemen of means living about May's Lick in this county. Later the
business was converted into the First National Bank, still operating in this city. Subsequently some of these parties withdrew and organized the bank of Mitchell, Finch & Company, an institution known to many. The Farmers' & Traders' Bank came as a later organization. This was started by the owners of the State Bank of Dover, whose business was removed to Maysville, and these
gentlemen with other interests organized the Farmers' & Traders' Bank. The Union Trust & Savings Company was established here many
years ago by the First National Bank people. All of these institutions have an active and influential clientage, enjoy a lucrative business, and it is but stating the truth to say that
no community in the state is afforded better accommodation at
more reasonable rates or on better terms.
