First National Bank: Hometown Banking Since 1874
First National Bank is a locally owned community bank committed to providing quality, personal, caring service to all people in the towns and communities that make up its service area. The “Hometown Bank” has a talented team of people who care about the communities and people they serve. The bank’s main office occupies a much enlarged space in the same building where itbegan 130 years ago. The illustrious history of First National Bank can be traced to 1874, when Jesse Jenkins and H.D. Lee organized a private bank in Shelby, North Carolina, known as J. Jenkins and Company. Burwell Blanton became a partner soon after the bank was established, and members of his family have headed the bank for nearly 130 years. In 1998, the bank acquired First Carolina Federal Savings Bank of Kings Mountain, North Carolina.
