The history of “The Greenville National Bank” dates back to 1876 when it was originally chartered by the State of Ohio; then as a national bank in 1903. The bank was reorganized in 1934 as Greenville National Bank.
The local economy and farm community has always been an integral part of the bank’s history as soil tests were made available for local farmers beginning in 1948 and maintaining valuable relationships with the agri-business customer is an important part of the over-all success today.
Greenville National Bank pioneered the bank credit card program in Greenville and Darke County in April, 1969 with the introduction of BankAmericard (now Visa).
