First National Bank of Shiner was founded in 1891, one year after Shiner was incorporated as a city. In that year, Confederate Captain and local rancher Charles Welhausen established a private bank for the growing railroad town.
In 1900 Captain Charles’ private bank became federally chartered. The First National Bank of Shiner has proven, since then, to be a strong financial institution and civic leader. Offering a wide range of modern banking services, we're leading the way for community and area businesses in the 21st century.
In 2001, a Texas Historical Commission marker was placed at the bank to commemorate the history of the First National Bank of Shiner. If you're interested in Shiner history, click here to resize the image of the marker.
In 2010, the bank opened a new branch in Cuero, operating as Cuero National Bank.
In 2012, a new location in Flatonia was opened and operates as Flatonia National Bank.
