banks that changed their name to Austin Bank on April 1, 1996. The bank opened in
1947 in downtown Big Sandy and in 1972 a new building was built at 108 East
Broadway, where the bank is located today.

branch have worked here or in the community for many years. The customers at our

professionally and personally. We work with a team attitude, so we are
able to make our customers feel as though they are part of the Austin Bank
family and not "just" a customer.

Chartered on August 30, 1965, First National Bank Whitehouse was started
by a group of local investors from Whitehouse. The Austin Bank family
purchased the bank on February 24, 1984. In April 1996, First National Bank
Whitehouse changed its name to Austin Bank, along with the five other
chartered banks.

The Whitehouse community is over 150 years old. Population has grown
from 2,000 in 1980 to almost 8,000 in 2006. A classic bedroom community,
Whitehouse is best known for its excellent 4A school system and proximity to
Lake Tyler. The bank has a large number of customers who have banked
with us for over 30 years.

What makes Whitehouse different is… The people that choose
to work here. Our community sees us as more than their banker. We
are their friends and have relationships with many of them.
