Back in 1988 the old Root store on Wabash Avenue was gone and an empty lot was turned into headquarter for First Financial Bank.
It was a four story structure with lots of extra space to grow.
The entire top floor was empty, until now.
69 employees from other areas will be moved into the newly finished space and the space they leave behind will be filled with other employees in need of more room.
First Financial Bank is the only publicly traded company headquartered in Terre Haute.
The bank has acquired several other banks over the past 25 years and now serves an area from central Illinois to Greencastle, Indiana.
