Our History

First National Bank of Picayune was founded in July 1947 to serve the Pearl River County market. It is the only local bank headquartered in Picayune, Mississippi. In addition to the main branch located on East Canal Street, the bank has three branches in Picayune: West Canal branch was opened in April 1963 on West Canal Street, North branch was opened in May 1976 on Hwy 11 North and relocated in February 1994 to Cooper Road, South branch was opened in September 1981 on Hwy 43 South and relocated in February 1996 to what is now called Memorial Drive. In October 1997, the bank acquired a branch of Magnolia Federal Bank on West College Avenue in Wiggins, Stone County. The branch in Wiggins operated under the name of Southern National Bank. The Wiggins branch relocated in July 2008 to Hall Street. The bank opened a branch in Poplarville, Pearl River County in April 1999 and is located on South Main Street.

In 2021, First National Bank of Picayune converted from a federal charter with the Office of the Comptroller of Currency to a state charter with the Mississippi Department of Banking and Consumer Finance. At this time, the bank changed its name from First National Bank of Picayune to FNB Picayune Bank. Poplarville branch and Wiggins branch are known as FNB Poplarville and FNB Wiggins, respectively. The name changed but the FNB employees continue to be the same friendly faces offering you the same great customer service. In August 2022, FNB opened a new branch in Kiln, Mississippi. The Kiln community did not have a bank to serve their area and FNB welcomed the opportunity to expand into Hancock County, MS.
