During the height of the Civil War and near the divisive Mason-Dixon line, a group of influential leaders in the small town of Glen Rock, Pennsylvania, joined together to form the First National Bank of Glen Rock, and on June 1, 1864, with just $50,000 in capital, our doors opened for business.
We opened during one of the most challenging periods in our nation’s history, and we’ve witnessed many historic events since. We survived natural disasters, such as hurricanes that flooded Glen Rock and destroyed many homes and businesses. We made it through the Great Depression, when many other banks across our country were collapsing. And today, we’re weathering one of the toughest economic climates and most challenging regulatory environments we’ve seen in decades. But through it all, we’ve survived, even thrived!
Our founders originally embarked on a mission to provide their neighbors with the financial services they needed to improve their lives, and today, our Board of Directors, Leadership Team, and dedicated employees remain true to that original mission.
Over 150 years later with over $1.5 billion in assets, and conveniently located financial centers throughout South Central Pennsylvania and Central Maryland, we are the largest independent financial institution headquartered in York County, Pennsylvania – just 11 miles up the road from our original home.
