First Security Bank (Farmers State Bank)

-A A +A
1918, Thompson and Harding. 1001 Front St.
  • (Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, A Division of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, Mason Toms, photographer)

Four monumental Tuscan stone columns on stone plinths define the facade of this light-brown brick two-story Classical Revival bank. The parapet front is inscribed with the bank’s name and two laurel wreaths. Along the building’s sides, windows are separated by brick pilasters. On the same block at 1020 Front is a former Ford Motor Company showroom (1920s), with the Ford name written in the company’s traditional script across the upper portion of the facade of red brick laid in a diaper pattern.
