Montgomery Bank recently celebrated "50 years of family ownership" with a Sikeston Area Chamber of Commerce mixer held at One Montgomery Bank Plaza in Sikeston.

2007 marks 50 years that the Montgomery family has owned and operated the Bank.

Montgomery Bank has 15 facilities throughout Southeast Missouri, St. Louis and southwest Florida. Montgomery Bank was originally chartered in 1903. Controlling interest in the bank was purchased in 1957 by Joel Montgomery Sr., a native of Sikeston.

Over the years, Montgomery's business interests have been in real estate development, as well as banking.

He is pictured speaking to those attending the Chamber mixer. Though Montgomery is now retired, the bank is still owned and managed by the Montgomery family.
