FNB announced a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off construction of its new bank building, to be located along Route 1 at 113 South Court Street in Grayville. The ceremony will be a celebration of this new project and will highlight the bank’s connection and history with the local area.

The ceremony will begin at the building site at 11 a.m. on April 7 and will be followed by a community lunch at the current facility at 119 S. Middle Street.

“FNB has been honored to be a part of the Grayville community for many years,” said Joey Hungerford, incoming President of FNB. “We are very excited to see this new facility come to fruition so that we can continue to better serve our customers and the Grayville community.”

The new 3,800 square foot facility will be more convenient for customers, with a state-of-the-art lobby and drive-through. Construction is expected to take approximately nine months, with an anticipated grand opening early 2022.

Fairfield National Bank was created in 1903 and was a successor to the respected Pendleton, Johns and Company banking business and the earlier E. Bonham & Company Bank. In 1931, Fairfield National accepted the assets and liabilities of the First National Bank, adding assets and ensuring long term stability.

FNB currently has locations in Fairfield, Wayne City, and Grayville and is a member FDIC.
