About Us

The Hometown Bank journey began with the vision of President, Lonnie W. Heckmaster, and a small group of local investors. With the belief that the residents of Southwest Missouri wanted and deserved a locally owned and operated bank that was focused on providing Exceptional customer service and improving the communities that it served, Hometown Bank was born.

Hometown Bank opened for business on June 8, 1998 with one location in Carthage, Missouri. Since then we have grown from that one location in Carthage to seven locations serving the communities of Carthage, Joplin, Neosho, Oronogo, and Pineville.

We continue to believe that personal service means getting to know you, your needs, and your goals for the future. Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
