In 1865, Bardstown, KY was rich in tradition. Its main streets were lined with homes of classic proportions and architectural styles. Many of them are still occupied today. The distilling of whiskey had long taken part in Nelson County due to its abundance of limestone spring water, but it was also notable as a very vibrant commercial town where nail and cotton factories, spinning mills and tanneries flourished. The enactment of the National Banking Act of 1863 and the end of the Civil War gave the opportunity for two merchants, Richard D. Shipp and Jeremiah Wilson, to obtain a charter to open the first bank in Nelson County. In February of 1868, ownership interest in the bank was transferred to Bardstown attorney Jasper W. Muir and businessman William Wilson. In 1890 the firm became the Banking House of Wilson & Muir. Over a century later, Wilson & Muir Bank & Trust Co. continues to be a leader for financial services. We're very proud to be the third oldest bank in Kentucky, but we are more proud of the confidence that our clients have shown in us over the years. Come and visit us today.
