Historic Planters Bank (Citizens Bank)

-A A +A
1920, Uzell Branson. 200 E. Hale Ave.
  • (Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, A Division of the Department of Arkansas Heritage)

This former bank has a richly articulated classical facade with a central entrance flanked in succession by fluted Doric columns and pairs of paneled pilasters separated by narrow windows. A massive dentiled pediment finishes the building. The brick walls of this former bank are barely visible behind all the classical adornments, which in their weightiness give the bank a sense of permanence and security. The bank closed in 1928 and had a succession of uses. Opposite at 207 E. Hale is the former Bank of Osceola (1909), a two-story brown brick building with its second story defined by two large semicircular arches enclosing windows. A tall cornice parapet with brick corbeling finishes the building; the ground story has been altered.
