The Wayne County National Bank was once one of Wooster's oldest businesses and largest commercial banking institutions located on the southwest corner of the Public Square. The bank was founded in 1845 and originally chartered as the Wayne County Branch, State Bank of Ohio, in 1849. The National Charter was received in 1865 at which time the name, Wayne County National Bank, was adopted. At one time it was recognized as the 8th oldest bank in Ohio. In 1976, the Wayne County Historical Society recognized the site as a Wayne County Historical Landmark.

Following 2004's buyout of the former Wayne Bancorp by Cleveland-based National City Bank, Pittsburgh-based PNC Bank announced on October 24, 2008 it was acquiring National City for $5.58 billion in stock and cash.
