The First National Bank was established in 1925 to serve the financial needs of Mount Dora and Central Florida.
Over the years, the First National Bank of Mount Dora has helped the community grow and prosper. It supports numerous community focused and charitable causes both directly and through the Mount Dora Community Trust for which the Bank serves as Trustee.
The First National Bank of Mount Dora has been owned and operated by the same dedicated group of local bankers since 1925. Now in its third generation of leadership, the executive team at First National grew up in the bank, learning how to support local businesses while adopting new ideas and technologies. Today First National is a community bank with unlimited reach, offering all of the services our customers need and expect, with a market-tested leadership team.
First National is committed to integrating the business tools owners need — online account management, wire services, online debit and credit card management, cash management — while maintaining a personal relationship that allows them to understand and anticipate the needs of their business.
Because First National bankers are local, and know their clients, they move fast and make big decisions quickly. There's no need to wait for approval from a distant regional office.
First National is equally dedicated to personal finances, offering online and mobile services including mobile deposit, so owners can easily manage all of their accounts at a single institution. And First National Trust & Investments professionals can help plan for a future beyond being a business owner and can help you create a family legacy.
On September 12, 1925, The Bank of Mount Dora and Trust Company received a charter to open its doors as a state bank.
The bank was originally located in a small building on Donnelly Street, just south of Fifth Avenue. In 1926, the bank built the brick building commonly remembered as "the old bank building" – now the Shamrock Building – on the corner of Fifth and Donnelly.
On July 6, 1927, the bank received its charter as a national bank and officially changed its name to The First National Bank of Mount Dora. Throughout the depression the bank's doors remained open and First National continued to be a safe and secure source for the community's banking needs.
In 1962 the bank received Federal approval to operate a trust department. The year 1965 saw the bank taking major strides by constructing and moving to its current headquarters at 714 North Donnelly.
