It was constructed shortly after 1900. Henry Starr, a well known outlaw & nephew of Belle Starr, attempted to rob the bank here in 1921. He was shot & killed by JW Myers, a former bank president, with a rifle hidden inside the vault. It was recorded as the first reported bank robbery using an automobile in the U.S.! Prior to his death Starr actually portrayed himself in a silent movie, "Debtor to the Law". The building housed the first post office and has been used over the years by various institutions including Arkansas Acceptance Corp, the Security Bank, First Federal S&L and is now the Coffman Center.
