Our Story

Welcome to Centre 1st Bank, the Pennsylvania division of Old Dominion National Bank

Since 2016, we have eagerly pursued and listened to the feedback of the Centre County community. What we learned was that there was a dividing hole in the overall banking experience. People were lessened to being regarded as a number and relationships had become viewed as merely a source of fee income. The coveted community bank model had been replaced with larger, regional and national names and locally sourced funding was no longer sourcing local projects. Centre County was in need of a financial partner who felt that the success of the community was equally as important as the success of the bank. With the support of 150 local investors, the concept of Centre 1st Bank emerged.

At Centre 1st we are more than just a bank and you are more than just a transaction. We are partners in finance and community. We are family, and this is home.
