Herrin Bank - Banterra Location

Banterra’s Herrin branch was established in 1999 and is located at 318 S. Park Avenue, near City of Herrin Fire Department and Southern Illinois Healthcare (SIH) Herrin Hospital.  Visitors can often enjoy beverages from Moore Than Coffee food truck or wash their pets at Pampered Paws Pet Wash in Banterra’s parking lot, just one of the ways Banterra supports our communities.

Like many Southern Illinois towns, Herrin has a rich history based on pioneers traveling to Illinois and later a coal-mining industry that caused this region to thrive.

The first permanent settler to Herrin was a preacher names Isaac Herring, and the area became known as Herring’s Prairie in 1816.  Later, his son-in-law, David Herrin, arrived and due to similar names, it was changed to Herrin’s Prairie, and then eventually to Herrin.  The community incorporated as a village in 1898 and as a city in 1900.

Herrin, along with the county, became a coal-mining hub, from the 1890s to 1930s.  On June 22, 1922, the city made national headlines with a tragic labor dispute known as the Herrin Massacre.  The dispute was between union and non-union miners, with more than 20 people killed and others wounded.  A Herrin Massacre Memorial can be found at the Herrin City Cemetery located 1.6 miles from Banterra to honor these victims.

Often mine owners would offer free ship passage from other countries to obtain new workers.  Herrin received a considerable number of Italian immigrants and the town celebrates the Italian culture and heritage to this day.  Herrin Festa Italiana is a five-day festival with food, music, rides and bocce ball tournaments and draws 60,000+ visitors.  You will also find Italian heritage throughout the year with icons like Louie’s P&R Italian Market, established in the late 1890s and located just one minute from Banterra’s Herrin branch.

Banterra supports community events such as Herrin Festa Italiana as well as the schools and sports of Herrin.  Herrin Community Unit School District No. 4. is home to the Herrin Tigers and includes four schools – Herrin High School, Herrin Jr. High School, Herrin Elementary School, and Northside Primary Center.  Our Lady of Mt. Carmel is a Catholic school with classes up to eighth grade and is home to the OLMC Crusaders.
