AMONG COLUMBIA PENNSYLVANIA’S
​OLDEST HISTORIC SITES

EXPLORE ONE OF THE OLDEST BANKS IN THE COUNTRY

The First National Bank of Columbia was chartered in 1864 and played a key role in the growth and development of Columbia.

Marvelous details from the bank’s working years survive, such as the walnut paying and receiving teller cages, the furnishings of the President’s office, the massive walk-in vault, and the original check canceller consisting of a tree stump and a specially designed hammer. 

 

The bank occupies the front two rooms of the historic building – ready to learn more?
