FNB History

Over 150 years of experience. FNB got its start in a home in Greenville, Pennsylvania, in 1864.

Today, we are the second largest bank based in Pennsylvania by assets and are recognized as a leader in innovation across our growing seven-state footprint.

While there have been many changes since our humble beginnings, our focus on doing what’s right for our customers and communities continues to define us today as it did at our very beginning.
