Let's take a look at where it all started.

The Muncy Banking Company opened its doors on November 1, 1893 and was the direct result of a few Muncy businessmen under the leadership of Lewis S. Smith. Smith, one of Muncy's most successful store owners, could see the need to maintain two banks in the community. One of Muncy's two banks had recently ceased to exist. As a result, the Muncy Banking Company was established to furnish the primary needs of the small businessmen and the people in the community. On June 20, 1962, the Board of Directors voted to broaden its services to include a trust department. At the same time the bank changed its name to The Muncy Bank and Trust Company.

On April 8th, 1899, five local businessmen petitioned the Comptroller of the Currency in Washington, D.C., to organize a new financial institution-The Bloomsburg National Bank. In 1926, The Bloomsburg Bank-Columbia Trust Company formed through the consolidation of the Columbia County Trust Company and the Bloomsburg National Bank. In 1990, Bloomsburg Bank-Columbia Trust changed its name to First Columbia Bank & Trust Co. In 2008, First Columbia Bank & Trust Co. and CCFNB joined forces and became the second largest independent publicly traded bank holding company headquartered in the three county radius. The bank was officially named First Columbia Bank & Trust Co., with CCFNB Bancorp. Inc. becoming the holding company.
