Longview Bank donate bank building to Chrisman Christian Church

The Longview Bank and Trust has donated their former Chrisman bank building to the Chrisman Christian Church.  

The Church plans to use the building to continue their Christian mission and expand their food pantry to serve the community.  The bank building is convenient for the church as it is adjacent to their existing church facility.  Christian Church Chairman Larry Henson stated, “they were glad to get the donation of the building and plan to convert the old bank to a new food bank.”

Bank President Bill Glaze said, “the Church asked the Bank Board to consider a donation of the building a few months ago.  We quickly realized this was a great way to repurpose the building as it will continue to serve the community as it has for the last 100 years.”   The State Bank of Chrisman was originally organized in 1892.

The Bank building was built in 1917 and used for banking purposes until July 2018 when a new bank facility was built on Route 1 in Chrisman.        

The new Chrisman building is the main bank for Longview Bank and Trust, previously State Bank of Chrisman.  Longview Bank and Trust has branches in Georgetown and Paris and also Loan Production Offices in Danville and Marshall.   

Longview Bank and Trust is owned by Longview Capital Corporation of Newman, Illinois.
