Long Description:


It was constructed shortly after 1900.Henry Starr, a well known outlaw

& nephew of Belle Starr, attempted to rob the bank here in 1921. He was

shot & killed by JW Myers, a former bank president, with a rifle hidden

inside the vault. It was recorded as the first bank robbery using

an automobile in the U.S.! Prior to his death Starr actually portrayed

himself in a silent movie, "Debtor To The Law". The building housed the

first post office and has been used over the years by various institutions

including Arkansas Acceptance Corp, the Security Bank, First Federal

S&L and is now the Coffman Center.
