The Lincoln National Bank of Bath was chartered in Maine as the Lincoln Bank on June 15, 1813. It was later organized under an act of Congress on June 3, 1864 as the First National Bank (of Bath Maine). In 1911, it was consolidated with the First National Bank of Bath. Reorganized in 1983 into the First bath Corp which merged into Meridian Bancorp in late 1983 (later First Union, then Wachovia, then Wells Fargo of today).
