Only Bank in De Soto to Close in April

DE SOTO (AP) — The only bank in the small southern Illinois community of DeSoto will close later this year, leaving village officials scrambling to draw another bank to the town of about 1,500 people.

Village President John Evans said town officials were informed that First Mid Bank and Trust would be closing its DeSoto branch office in April.

According to The Southern Illinoisan, De Soto’s first bank opened in a grocery store in 1920.
