HISTORYAlfred Hall was the leader in promoting the Hurricane State Bank. Arnold Dixon, cousin to Alfred, had the original idea and the two of them succeeded in stirring the interest of Dave Hirschi, who was the logical man to head the bank, because of his shrewd business ability and keen foresight. They were successful in their endeavor and Alfred was a director from the time the bank was organized in 1917 until 1933, and was the largest stockholder until just prior to his death in early 1934.
That State Bank of Hurricane was bought out by the Bank of St. George sometime between 1958 and 1961. Then the Bank of St. George was bought out by Zions First National Bank sometime between 1961 and 1972.
