First National Bank became an integral part of Layton, Utah, when it opened for business in 1905 as The First National Bank of Layton. At that time, many citizens of Layton only had access to their banks through the mail, and having a brick-and-mortar bank in their town was simply wonderful. Over the next 111 years, the Bank grew to have seven branches, acquired the Second National Bank of Layton, and expanded its market area southward, eventually including the greater Salt Lake City metropolitan area.
