First Freedom Bank is an independent, community-focused, full-service bank with offices in Lebanon, Mt. Juliet, Cookeville, Algood, and Gainesboro, TN. First Freedom was the dream of 17 organizers who thought it was time true community banking returned to the communities of Middle Tennessee. Local banking professionals and community leaders dreamed of a bank that would make this area a better place to live for many decades to come. That dream became a reality when First Freedom opened its first office in Lebanon in April 2006. First Freedom is a true community bank: of its more than 1,000 initial investors, more than 98% were from Middle Tennessee. The bank’s original stock offering of $20 million was raised in less than three weeks.
Since our humble beginnings in 2006, we’ve opened two new retail offices and an operations center in Mt. Juliet, followed by a new main office facility in Lebanon in 2012. In May of 2016, we entered Putnam and Jackson counties with offices in Cookeville, Algood, and Gainesboro. Our assets now approach $600 million. We have approximately 75 employees. First Freedom Bank is a member of the Better Business Bureau, and Equal Housing Lender, and Member FDIC. Additionally, First Freedom has earned the prestigious Five Star rating by Bauer Financial, the nation’s leading independent bank and credit union rating firm.
