The Bank of Carthage was a local bank in Carthage, Missouri. It traced its history to 1868 and called itself the "oldest bank in southwest Missouri."[1][2][3]

The Bank of Carthage was a successful business for many decades, surviving the Great Depression with minimal disruption due to its conservative policies.[1][2] It occupied an historic building on Main Street in Carthage from 1882 until 1960, when it relocated to a more modern facility.[3]

After 1960 the company was absorbed into Boatmen’s Bank and subsequently Bank of America.[3]
