Owl Creek Bank was formed about 1816. The first meeting of record was held April 10, 1816.
Owl Creek was an unchartered bank. John Shrimplin is listed as a stock holder with 20 shares. Much controversy surrounded the operation.
The bank only lasted a few years but took until 1859 to finally dispose of all assets and indebtedness.
Several articles have been written about the bank in Knox County History.
