Checking accounts are the product of a long evolution. The first known checking accounts started in ancient Mesopotamia, where people would store their goods and valuables in temples and palace and use receipts as means of payment for daily transactions. From there, they continued to evolve and became popular in Europe in the Middle ages. Checking accounts were eventually brought to American colonies by the British. Technology continued to advance, and finally, checking accounts became what they are today.
Just like the evolution of checking accounts, First Bank has evolved to meet the needs of our customers. We started out as a small bank in a small North Carolina town, helping local farmers and businessmen manage their finances. Since then we have expanded our services and clientele, and we currently have over 75 locations in North Carolina alone.
