Ennis State bank opened its’ doors on April 18, 1933 at 110 W. Ennis Avenue. W. B. Rider, Sr, former Deputy Commission for the Texas Department of Banking, served as the President of the Bank from 1940-1952. The Bank provided leadership and services to the community with business, agricultural, and consumer loans.
In March of 1953 the Bank relocated to 113 N. Dallas Street, Ennis and opened the first drive-in banking window in Ellis County. Our first customer, Ms. Opel Pannil, was served by F E Hoefer, Jr. who is still with the Bank today!
In 1953 W. B. Rider Jr. was elected President of Ennis State Bank. During his tenure as President, Ennis State Bank experienced much success and soon out grew its second location. In 1983 a new location was constructed at 815 W. Ennis Ave. This modern architectural design was unique to the area and boasted a drive in facility with ten lanes! The large windows and unique shape of the building offered a comfortable and open atmosphere for conducting banking business.
In 1993, Bramlet Beard was named President and CEO of Ennis State Bank. Mr. Beard brought many years of lending experience and knowledge to the Bank.
