A Little History:

The National Bank of Petersburg
was formed on August 1st, 1948, after the liquidation of Schirding State Bank. At this time it was housed in the former Schirding Bank building on the northwest corner of the square. In 1963, a new bank building was erected on the southeast side of the downtown square. Our present location at 321 N. 6th was built in 1976, while still maintaining our location on the square as a small lobby and drive up facility. In Feb. 1997, National Bank of Petersburg purchased the Petersburg branch of First of America-Springfield, utilizing the drive-up building as an additional location.

National Bank of Petersburg continues to remain a strong independent community bank, which serves the public interest with competitive and up to date services for the benefit of the public and community.
