About Pennian Bank

Founded in 1864 as The First National Bank of Mifflintown by Edmund Southard Doty and his two nephews, the bank stood as a pillar of the community serving local businesses and residents.

In June 2017, the change from a national to state charter presented the opportunity for a brand change to reflect the bank’s growth. Pennian was chosen as a unique name, giving a nod to the bank’s strong Pennsylvania roots. From humble beginnings, Pennian Bank now has 10 offices in Juniata, Perry and Cumberland Counties, offering a wide variety of financial services.

Pennian Bank is committed to fulfilling the financial needs of the Central PA communities that we serve. It is our goal to bring you the highest level of customer service, while managing your account relationship with care and attention.
