Laurel, then and now: Citizens National Bank



THEN: Organized in March 1890, Citizens National Bank of Laurel has anchored the corner of Fourth and Main streets for more than 120 years and is the oldest national bank in Prince George's County. Charles H. Stanley was elected the first bank president, and served from 1890 to 1913. A 1938 album of Laurel businesses, published by Wm. H. Anglin, described Citizens National Bank of Laurel as "a safe, sound institution (that) provides all modern banking facilities."

NOW: Maintaining its signature turret roof and corner entry, Citizens National Bank has expanded along Main Street, has its brick facade painted white and has a new name: PNC Bank, which acquired Citizens National Bank of Laurel in September 2007.
