First Community Bank was founded in 1993 in Rogersville, TN. The Bank’s organizers and nearly 1000 stockholders believed that Hawkins County and Northeast Tennessee would support a locally owned and managed financial institution. The bank was founded on the premise that individuals and small and medium size businesses were under served by large traditional banks. The Bank now operates six offices in Hawkins and Sullivan Counties.
