The charter for The Farmers and Mechanics Bank was granted on March 31, 1869. Chauncey Colton founded F&M Bank, was the largest stockholder, and served as its first president. He and his associates chose a name that related directly to the real builders of the town, those hardworking farmers and the shoemakers, blacksmiths, carriage builders and printers - all who were called mechanics. F&M Bank is proud to have built trust and long-lasting relationships with generations of clients. Througho
