Planters Bank

Bank History

Since first opening its doors in 1996 in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, Planters Bank has made a name for itself as an energetic, forward-looking player on the financial services landscape. Contributing to our success is the flexibility afforded by being well-capitalized, locally owned and responsibly managed.

Today, Planters Bank has full-service offices, Commercial Services offices, Mortgage Services and Trust Services serving Hopkinsville, Western Kentucky and Clarksville, Tennessee.

Planters Bank’s Main Campus is located in Downtown Hopkinsville and is anchored by its Main Office, located in the restored Dillard-Campbell House. Constructed in 1849, the Dillard-Campbell House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Dillard-Campbell House

The Dillard-Campbell – or "Gunboat Dillard" – House is located at Main and 14th Streets in Downtown Hopkinsville, and is the oldest structure operating as a business in the city.

It was built in 1849 by Dutch carpenter Dan Umbenhour for Robert Dillard using plans drawn by Minard LaFever.

The building had the unique distinction of being headquarters for both Union and Confederate forces (at separate times, of course) during the Civil War. It was owned by Daniel M. Taylor and the Campbell and Green families until Gordon Cayce Antiques and Gifts opened there in 1950. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In the mid-1990s, Planters Bank meticulously renovated the beloved building to be its Main Office.

Immediately northeast of the Dillard-Campbell House is the Jones-Perkins House, built in the late 1870s-early1880s. The two historic homes are now physically connected and provide customer service and bank meeting and office spaces. These two structures form the core of Planters Bank’s Main Office campus in Downtown Hopkinsville.
