History:
In 1927, the construction of the First National Bank was one of the most forward steps ever taken by any institution in Kingsport, particularly at a time when the city was in the midst of great building activity." With predominately white marble exterior, complemented by an impressive interior with high ceilings, attractive chandeliers, and magnificent arched windows, it was "rated the most beautiful banking institution in East Tennessee". In 2009, the building was completely revitalized and this gorgeous structure still holds its historical integrity in the form of BANQ, a banquet hall built, similarly to the original bank, to leave a lasting impression.
