Chartered (685) in 1841 as the Farmers Deposit Bank Based in Pittsburgh, PA, this national bank reorganized in 1865 as the Farmers Deposit National Bank but not incorporated under the name until 1903 (possibly change in holding corporation). The bank operated into 1928 before consolidating with the Farmers Deposit Savings Bank. Although it continued under the same name into the 1930's, it could not survive the Depression.
