FNB celebrates 50 years

The History of FNB of Central Alabama

In 1965, several local businessmen saw a need for a new bank in Aliceville, Alabama.  On July 25, First National Bank of Aliceville was chartered by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.  The Bank officially opened for business on August 2, 1965.  Our founders, most with agricultural backgrounds, had the foresight and the competitive spirit that has spearheaded FNB’s growth to more than $236 million in assets today.

In August 1984, a newly formed holding company purchased the Bank of Gordo, which gave FNB more diversity and strength in numbers.  In 1989, a new branch was established in Carrollton, and another branch opened in Reform in 1991, giving First National Bank of Pickens County its fourth branch.

Four years later, in 1995 the bank expanded across county lines to neighboring Northport and became First National Bank of Central Alabama.  Tuscaloosa County welcomed FNB because of its personal, down-home service, something that could not be found at many of the larger banks.

The bank made a major commitment to Tuscaloosa County when it opened its corporate headquarters and full-service bank in downtown Tuscaloosa in February 2006. At that time, new board members from the Tuscaloosa business community were added to the bank’s leadership team.

In connection with a change of the Bank’s charter from a national bank to a state bank in 2014 the name of the Bank was changed to FNB of Central Alabama.

FNB will continue to emphasize personal banking and local decision making while continuing to improve its products and services.  Our number one goal is to make banking simple.

FNB of Central Alabama is a full service bank with commercial, business, agricultural, consumer and mortgage services.
