The history of First National Bank can be traced right back to 1791 when the First Bank of the United States was established.
Twenty-one years later when the bank was on the verge of collapse it was taken over by Colonel Samuel Osgood, who had fought alongside George Washington in the American War of Independence and later served in Washington's cabinet.
He renamed the bank the City Bank of New York and built up the business again.
