First National Bank Museum

Only known bank in America preserved in original setting

Enjoy a guided tour of the First National Bank Museum and discover one of the few banks still preserved in its original setting in the United States.  Marvelous details from the bank’s working years survive, such as the walnut paying and receiving teller cages, furnishings of the President’s office, the massive walk-in vault, and view the bullet hole created when the only known robbery attempt was thwarted.

First built as a townhouse in 1814, this Federal-style brick home has also served as The First National Bank of Columbia chartered in 1864, a tavern, a hotel, private residences, and Columbia’s first public library.  The museum offers guided tours by reservation for a minimum group of 4 guests and a maximum of 15 per tour.  Masks are required at all times.
