HOPE- With over 20 locations in Arkansas and Texas and currently holding two branch offices in Hope, Farmers Bank and Trust will continue to grow in our community. After Hempstead County purchased the current FB&T building located at 200 East Third Street to be to the new Hempstead County Courthouse, the bank has purchased land directly across the street at 201 East Third Street for their branch location. Corporate officials including President and Cheif Executive Officer, Chris Gosnell and Bruce Maloch who were both present during the the signing over the bank building held back in December 2017 made an appearance at the ground breaking that was held on Tuesday, June 12. Hempstead County Judge Haskell Morse, Mayor Steve Montgomery, and Chamber Director Beckie Moore assisted the bank officials with the official ground breaking.
