The County National Bank of Clearfield was founded by a group of citizens from Clearfield on February 5, 1865. The law authorizing the organization of national banks was passed during President Lincoln's administration and had been in effect for less than two years.

Years later, in March of 1933, President Roosevelt declared a "Bank Holiday," closing all national banks. Those banks in poor financial condition never reopened. County National, however, reorganized in February of 1934 by virtue of a stock offering to existing depositors. The bank was renamed "The County National Bank at Clearfield," and was capitalized with $225,000 of preferred capital stock, $225,000 in common stock and $90,000 in surplus. Also, County National Bank formed a Trust Department to serve the customer's trust and estate needs.  To simplify growth into additional market areas, the name was changed to "County National Bank" in 1965.

Our Reorganization

In March of 1984, County National Bank reorganized and became a wholly owned subsidiary of CNB Financial Corporation. This arrangement allowed shareholders to expand the financial services beyond those the bank itself was permitted to offer under current regulations.

In October, 2005, a new bank named ERIEBANK was formed in Erie, Pennsylvania. Operating as a division of County National Bank, the new organization opened a Loan Production Office at 1001 State Street in downtown Erie.

On November 7, 2005, CNB Financial Corporation purchased the performing loans of Holiday Consumer Discount Company and formed the Holiday Financial Services Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of CNB Financial Corporation.  The corporation offers its customers both secured and unsecured consumer loans, sales finance products and associated credit insurance products.

County National Bank converted from a national banking charter to a state banking charter on December 29, 2006, officially changing its name to CNB Bank.

On October 11, 2013, CNB Financial Corporation acquired the eight branch bank, Farmers Citizens Bank, which was headquartered just north of Columbus in Bucyrus, Ohio.  Following the acquisition, FCBank, a division of CNB Bank was formed.

In July, 2015, CNB Bank, completed a merger with Lake National Bank, a national bank in Mentor, Ohio with two branches. Offices of Lake National Bank now operate under the trade name, ERIEBANK, a division of CNB Bank.

In November, 2016, a new bank named BankOnBuffalo was formed in Buffalo, New York.  Operating as a division of CNB Bank, the new organization opened its first full service location inside Buffalo's historic Electric Tower.
