History of Huntington Bank
Huntington Bancshares Inc. is a regional bank holding company headquartered in Columbus, Ohio. The company was founded in 1866 as The Huntington National Bank of Columbus, and it has since grown to become a major regional bank with a large presence in the Midwest.
The bank was founded by railroad entrepreneur and industrialist Collis P. Huntington, who saw the need for a financial institution to serve the growing population and business community in Columbus. The bank was originally called The Huntington National Bank of Columbus, and it was chartered by the state of Ohio in 1866.
Over the years, Huntington has expanded its operations through a series of acquisitions and mergers. In the late 1960s, the bank merged with The First National Bank of Cleveland, which allowed it to expand into the Cleveland market. In the 1980s, the bank expanded into Indiana and Kentucky through acquisitions of several smaller banks.
Today, Huntington is a full-service bank with over 1,000 branches across eight states, including Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware. The bank offers a wide range of financial products and services to its customers, including checking and savings accounts, mortgages, loans, and investment services.
