The Tyrone Area Chamber of Commerce has announced that the First Blair County National Bank is the next in the series of Hometown Collectibles.
The back of the collectible reads, “Blair County National Bank was built in 1891 at One West Tenth Street. Established in 1874 as a private bank (Garman Building), it was Federally chartered in 1902 and merged with First National Bank (Jones Building) in 1932.
