First Tennessee Bank

Despite the hardships and divided loyalties of the Civil War, First National Bank of Memphis received Chartered No. 336 from the office of the Comptroller of the Currency on March 25, 1864. Renamed First Tennessee in 1971, the city’s first federally chartered bank has been headquarters within blocks of its original s South Court Street location ever since. During the 1878 yellow fever epidemic, bookkeeper Charles Q. Harris single-handedly kept the bank opened to serve customers and distribute relief funds to Memphians.
