Virginia National Bankshares Corporation and Fauquier Bankshares, Inc. Announce Strategic Merger of Equals.
The transition of the combined bank will take some time, but we expect to serve all clients at all locations by August 2021.
The Fauquier Bank received its original charter February 14, 1902 and opened for business on March 20, 1902 as Fauquier National Bank of Warrenton. In those early years, most all banks were locally owned and operated. But when our first century in business concluded, we were the sole remaining independent bank in Fauquier County and western Prince William County.
Our original purpose was to fill a community need for a local financial institution. The community responded and we grew. With growth came expansion; our Trust Department was established in 1919 and, in 1926, we opened a second branch in The Plains. Today, we have eleven established branches.
Having weathered the Great Depression, several wars, and many periods of recessions followed by expansive growth, we are proud of our ability to adapt to the changing needs of the times. As the banking industry began to change in the late 1980's, we recognized we must also change. On June 25, 1994, The Fauquier National Bank became The Fauquier Bank, changing from a nationally chartered bank to a Virginia state bank.
For over a century, TFB has built its reputation on trust and sound business judgment. As a full-service financial institution, we provide quality banking and wealth management products to businesses and families. Personal service with a hometown touch is our hallmark for making your financial life easier. Join us and be a part of the tradition!
On April 1, 2021, The Fauquier Bank merged with Virginia National Bank. The combined bank will cover the counties of Fauquier, Prince William, Frederick, and Albemarle, and the cities of Richmond and Charlottesville. Bringing together over 140 years of combined banking experience to our community. The transition of the combined bank will take some time, but we expect to serve all clients at all locations by August 2021. Welcome to the new legacy!
As we continue to grow, we will never lose sight of the critical ingredients to our continued success. Exceptional service begins and ends with people. That’s why we say, “It’s all about people . . . and always will be.”
