Opened in 1990
Our Peoria location was initially established as part of Dunlap Bank to serve the growing Dunlap community. The North Knoxville location opened in 1990.
While further strengthening the bank overall, the combinations of the banks allow us to offer customers an enhanced line of products and services while providing additional locations and ATMs for added convenience.
At Better Banks we put our money to work in the neighborhood that we call home. From local farms to small businesses, banking locally with Better Banks connects you to your community and your neighbors and gives everyone a stake in its financial success.
We know we’re only as strong as the communities we serve.

Peoria Community Involvement
Being a community leader is who we are. Our team volunteers hundreds of hours each year in leadership and education roles in addition to sponsoring local events.
As a community bank, we feel strongly that giving back to our local community is important.
Especially efforts aimed at improving overall economic well-being and making a positive difference in our local schools and communities.
