The McGill National Bank, Nevada

sideline_295

 

Charter: 9452

Year Opened: 1909

The McGill National Bank could be called the forgotten bank in Nevada. It didn’t issue any rare or unseen banknotes and it doesn’t have an exceptionally interesting location or back story. On a somewhat interesting note it is likely one of the few national banks in the country that is private name bank that is not a private name bank. The town itself is named after William N. McGill who happened to be the first president of The McGill National Bank. So is the bank named after the president or the town; I guess it is a chicken and egg kind of thing.

We do know that The McGill National Bank got its national charter in 1909 and succeeded the Bank of Ely which had a branch in McGill. The McGill National Bank closed in 1934 during the great depression.

First President: William N. McGill
First Cashier: P.C. Cripps

Other people associated with the bank: Frank W. Holmes, Herman Wise, C.B. Lakenan, Charles S. Chandler, M.H. Patton, J.C. Kinnear, Lloyd Clark, William B. Thompson, Arthur Smith, O.G. Burns, H.J. Muller, A.P. Slichter, A.E. Preston
