Our History

exterior of Community Point Bank in Russellville

Our Roots Grow Deep in Mid-Missouri

Community Point Bank has always had its roots in the mid-Missouri area. The first bank, located in Russellville, MO, was the Russellville Exchange Bank organized in 1895. Later, in 1912, the Farmers and Merchants Bank was organized and, in the late 1920s, the Russellville Exchange Bank took over the Farmers and Merchants Bank. When the Great Depression hit, the bank closed for a short time. It reopened on July 10, 1934, under the name of Community Bank of Russellville. The bank remained in the original Exchange Bank building until 1972 when it moved to its present location. In 1999,  the new Community Bank of Russellville building underwent extensive renovations and additions.

Community Bank of Russellville opened a second location in Eugene, MO, in March of 2008 and started construction on a new, permanent facility in 2012. The bank changed its name to Community Point Bank in 2012 and opened its doors under the new name in January 2013. In March of 2017 a third location joined our growing bank network with a new Community Point Bank on the east side of Versailles, MO.
