The National Bank of Commerce Building is a historic commercial building at 200 S. Pruett St. in downtown Paragould, Arkansas. It is a two-story structure, built out of cut stone, with a center entrance recessed in a two-story opening with flanking Ionic columns. This Classical Revival style building, probably the finest of its style in Greene County, and the least-altered bank building of the period in Paragould, was designed by the Memphis firm of Hankers and Cairns and was built in 1923.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.[1]
