In 1983, First Financial Bank asked for and received approval as a holding company entity comprised of multiple banks. This landmark decision made them the first such holding company in Indiana. Their corporate offices are located in Terre Haute, Indiana, about 50 miles southeast of Indianapolis near the Bloomington campus of Indiana University.
Consistently ranking among the top 100 holding companies in the nation for efficiency, First Financial Corporation continues the long history of success that made their company’s heritage so strong. This community of banks continues to grow and serve Indiana communities through well-placed mergers and general expansion.
