Founded in the early 1920s the goal of City Securities Corporation was simple: "to provide complete investment banking service to the people of Indiana." And while we’ve grown and diversified our services for nearly a century, that purpose is still at the center of everything we do.
We made history by underwriting the largest bond issue in Indiana history—the $580,370,000 issue for the City of Indianapolis Waterworks. In May 2002, City Securities Corporation relocated to our current offices at 30 South Meridian. While still the leader in the underwriting and distribution of municipal securities in Indiana we have become the diversified company that we are today.

For more than 25 years, State Farm has enjoyed a strong relationship with Indiana State and the Scott College of Business, which has led to success for both our business students and the company. To State Farm, an investment in the Scott College and its students and programs is an investment in the future of the insurance industry and the communities in which we live.
As a result of State Farm's philanthropic support, the Scott College of Business has received past and present scholarship support for its insurance and risk management, sales and marketing and management information system programs. State Farm has also provided funding for student development, summer internships,technology needs, student organizations,executives in residence, the Leader In Action program and the State Farm Circle of Influence Speakers Series. In the past, the company has also provided dollars for MIS high school competitions. In addition, State Farm has committed resources to form the Scott College of Business' Career Experience Center, which later became the Center for Student Professional Development and today is known as the Meis Student Development Center. State Farm also assisted in the development of the financial trading room, which is part of the Minas Center for Investment and Financial Education in the Scott College.
In 1834, a branch of the Second State Bank of Indiana - the earliest ancestor of First Financial Bank - opened to serve the people who had settled in Vigo County and the Wabash River Valley.Today, First Financial Bank is the oldest national bank in Indiana and the fifth oldest in the United States, still holding the 47th charter granted in the United States. Anticipating passage of a state law that would allow multi-bank holding companies, the bank applied for approval from the Federal Reserve Board to establish such an entity. It received that approval in February 1983, and First Financial Corporation became the holding company for what was then Terre Haute First National Bank. In August 1984, First Financial Corporation became the first multi-bank holding company in the state of Indiana.
Through growth and mergers, First Financial became a strong group of community banks. In 2003, unification of affiliate banks as First Financial Bank began. The Morris Plan of Terre Haute and Forrest Sherer Insurance, members of First Financial Corporation, were not included in the unification. The Corporation provides a financial services delivery system consisting of 69 banking centers in eastern Illinois and western Indiana, multiple insurance offices and more than 100 FirstPlus ATMs.
