The Eureka County Bank was incorporated on February 23, 1885 by Messrs M. D. Foley, R. K. Morrison, B. Gilman, W. E. Griffin and Mr. Daniel Myer of San Francisco. Its capital stock was one hundred thousand dollars and its first officers and directors were M. D. Foley president, R. K. Morrison vice president, H. T. Hoadley cashier, and W. E. Griffin assistant cashier. Wren in his history of Nevada says, "The bank has done a general banking business and has been the foundation upon which many of the business enterprises of the vicinity have depended." "...which has been the strong fortress of the commercial and financial activity of Eureka county and by its honorable business methods and sound conduct has won the confidence of the business element of the county and the state has had a successful existence for nearly twenty years and has throughout this period been under the control of men of highest financial integrity and reliability."The Eureka County Bank opened a branch in Elko around 1903. In 1905 the First National Bank of Elko took over the Elko operations.
