First Bank has a legacy of customer- and community-centric financial service dating back to 1935.
First Bank opened its first branch in Troy, N.C., to meet the needs of a small town that lost its bank at the beginning of the Great Depression. Back then, we were called Bank of Montgomery, and we were known for helping farmers and local businesses make “every penny count” throughout the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s.
We changed our name to First Bank in 1985. Through the manufacturing, industrial and technology growth periods of the ‘80s, ‘90s and early 2000s, we continued to evolve to meet the needs of our customers.
Today, First Bank is a progressive community bank network and serves as the bank of choice for emerging businesses, families, and customers across North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. Our focus is still on delivering value to you, our customers, as it has been across these last two centuries.
All along, we’ve strived to be the bank Worth More To You.
