WILLIAMSPORT, PA – Citizens & Northern Bank was recognized for celebrating its 150-year charter anniversary at the Pennsylvania Bankers Association (PBA) Group 4 meeting at the Williamsport Country Club. The PBA recognizes member charter anniversaries every five years from the date of that institution’s charter.
Citizens & Northern Bank, headquartered in Wellsboro, PA, was founded in 1864 as the First National Bank of Wellsborough. The Articles of Association were signed on Feb. 27, 1864 and the bank received its charter on March 21, 1864. C&N maintained a single office in Wellsboro until opening its first branch in Tioga on March 1, 1961. The C&N Trust and Financial Management Group was formed as the bank’s first division in 1960.
The bank experienced rapid growth during the ensuing four decades, expanding to 26 offices in two states. The bank’s name was changed to Citizens & Northern in 1971 following the merger of Northern National Bank and Trust Company of Wellsboro and Citizens National Bank of Towanda.
