First & Farmers National Bank was established in February of 2008 when the First & Farmers Bank group of banks in Somerset, Albany, Burnside, and Nancy and the First National Bank of Columbia, including the Bank of Cumberland of Burkesville, consolidated banking operations. The bank employs approximately 165 people and has over $470,000,000 in assets. The corporate colors are red, white, and blue, as in the colors of the American flag, and the corporate logo is the soaring bald eagle.
Today’s First & Farmers National Bank can trace its history to Citizens Bank of Albany located in Albany, Kentucky dating back to 1898; First National Bank of Columbia located in Columbia, Kentucky dating back to 1903; Bank of Cumberland located in Burkesville, Kentucky dating back to 1889; and First & Farmers Bank located in Somerset dating back to 1818.
