According to records the City has had three banks through history. The Citizens Bank, Peoples Bank and Farmers Bank and Capital Trust which is now known as United Bank.
One of the greatest tragedies to hit Stamping Ground was the bank robbery on November 28, 1932. Cashier Mr. Ben Keenon died from his injuries on December 10, 1932. A tag lost from one of the bandit’s shirts was the clue that led police to Chicago where they picked up one suspect. The rest of the gang was arrested in various places and brought to trial.
