U.S. Bank’s history dates back to 1863 when First National Bank of Cincinnati opened for business. As regional banks proliferated across the country in the years that followed, a number of other predecessors were born. After a series of mergers at the turn of the 21st century, they formally took on the U.S. Bank name and established their headquarters in Minnesota. Today, U.S. Bank is the fifth-largest bank in the country, with more than 70,000 employees and $495 billion in assets. For further information, visit usbank.com.
