The merger of three Alabama banks -- First National Bank of Montgomery, Exchange Security Bank of Birmingham and First National Bank of Huntsville -- combined to create Regions Bank in 1971. These three initial banks carried a rich history in Alabama, which introduced depth and dimension to the nascent Regions Bank. For instance, the First national Bank building maintained the same purpose for 170 years until its retirement in 2010, except for a small hiatus when it served as a hospital for Union Soldiers during the American Civil War.
Regions Bank grew larger after the passage of the Interstate Banking Bill in 1986. This bill allowed banks to acquire out-of-state assets and directly led to Regions Bank's expansion across the south and midwest.Learn more about Banks
