A Little History

In 1900, W.A. Graham, a local cattleman and businessman founded the First National Bank of Pryor Creek. Over time, this Bank’s name evolved into First National Bank of Pryor. On W.A. Graham’s 100th birthday in 1951, Main Street of Pryor was rededicated and named Graham Avenue in his honor.

Nolen Jacobs bought controlling interest in the bank in 1957, and his son, Mike Jacobs and his family members have been shareholders since Nolen Jacobs passed away in 1994.

In 2000, the year of its 100th anniversary, the Bank’s name was changed to First Pryority Bank. A Tulsa branch of First Pryority Bank was established in February 2002. The Tulsa Branch was the first bank in Oklahoma to establish its own post office which is an extremely popular service for the public.
