Since 1864

In 1864 – 150 years ago – we started out as First National Bank of Ionia. Since then, we’ve maintained our local roots while growing across the state. During those 150 years, many things have changed, but our greatest achievements are rooted in the things that haven’t. We’re invested in our communities today just as we were in 1864, and we’re your friends and neighbors, not just your bankers. Those are the kind of relationships we began building 150 years ago, and they’re still the foundation of our business.
