ACNB Bank Celebrates 165 Years of Service to the Community. 

ACNB Bank 165th Anniversary

Posted on Apr 05, 2022

On April 11, 2022, ACNB Bank will commemorate 165 years since its founding as The Farmers’ and Mechanics’ Savings Institution of Adams County. What began as a savings institution with one location on Lincoln Square in Gettysburg in 1857 has become a vibrant and successful community bank in 2022 with 31 community banking offices and three loan offices spanning four counties in southcentral Pennsylvania and two counties in central Maryland. 

Much has changed since 1857, but ACNB Bank has remained true to its roots --- still headquartered in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and working hard every day to deliver an exceptional banking experience to every client. A steadfast determination to building an even stronger community bank means the legacy will continue for future generations. 

ACNB Bank’s long history reinforces the tradition and importance of the community banking model of reinvesting depositors’ dollars in loans to others for the economic benefit of the shared community. This responsibility, as an integral member of the local community, entails serving the financial needs of consumers, businesses, and other entities each business day, as well as providing meaningful job opportunities to local residents.

Our team of professional bankers and staff sincerely values your relationship and loyalty to ACNB Bank. We look forward to serving our customers for another 165 years with the same level of commitment and enthusiasm that has become the standard for everything we do. 

Join us in sharing the news about this exciting milestone in ACNB Bank’s history!
