PNC Financial Services traces its history to the Pittsburgh Trust and Savings Company which was founded in "Pittsburgh, "Pennsylvania on April 10, 1845. Due to the long recovery from the "Great Fire of Pittsburgh, PNC was not fully operational until January 28, 1852, when it opened offices at "Liberty Avenue and 12th street. The bank was renamed The Pittsburgh Trust Company in 1853. In 1858, the company located its corporate offices at the corner of "Fifth Avenue and Wood Street in Pittsburgh where they remain to this day. The bank changed its name to First National Bank of Pittsburgh in 1863, after it became the first bank in the country to apply for a national charter as part of that year's "National Banking Act. It received charter #48 on August 5, 1863, with other later banks receiving charters sooner due to paperwork problems and the fact that the bank was already in business.
By 1959, after a series of mergers, the bank had evolved into the Pittsburgh National Bank, which later became the leading subsidiary of Pittsburgh National Corporation. Another branch of the current bank, the "Philadelphia based Provident National Corporation, dates back to the mid-19th century.
In 1982, Pittsburgh National Corporation and Provident National Corporation merged into a new entity named PNC Financial Corporation, so the acronym technically doesn't stand for anything. It was the largest bank merger in American history at the time and created a company with $10.3 billion in assets. Between 1991 and 1996, PNC purchased more than ten smaller banks and financial institutions that broadened its market base from "Kentucky to the "Greater New York metropolitan area.
On October 24, 2008, during the "financial crisis of 2007-2008, PNC announced that it would acquire "Cleveland-based "National City Corp. for $5.2 billion in stock.

The deal helped PNC double in size and to become the sixth largest bank in the United States by deposit and fifth largest by branches and made PNC the largest bank in "Pennsylvania, "Ohio, and "Kentucky, as well as the second largest bank in "Maryland and "Indiana. It also greatly expanded PNC's presence in the "Midwest as well as entering the "Florida market. National City complemented PNC's presence, as Western Pennsylvania, "Cincinnati, Ohio and "Louisville, Kentucky were among the few markets before the acquisition deal in which both banks had a major presence.
PNC then had its footprint stretch from "New York City to "St. Louis, with branches as far south as "Miami and as far north as "Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan on the "Upper Peninsula of Michigan. PNC completed the conversion of the National City branches on June 14, 2010.

Dwelling House had been known in Pittsburgh to provide low-income "African Americans loans that other banks would deny, and had fended off receivership from the FDIC as recently as June 2009 through community fundraisers. PNC closed the former Dwelling House branch shortly after assuming Dwelling House's assets, with accounts transferred to the pre-existing PNC branch in the Hill District.

This acquisition filled a gap in PNC's market footprint between northern Virginia and central Florida, adding about 900,000 customers and 483 ATM locations. It made PNC the 5th largest bank by branches behind "Wells Fargo, "Bank of America, "Chase, and "U.S. Bancorp and the 6th largest by total assets behind the aforementioned four banks and "Citibank.

In December 2013, the Department of Justice and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced that they had reached an agreement with National City Bank to resolve allegations that the bank had charged Black and Hispanic borrowers higher prices for mortgages between 2002 and 2008 (before the acquisition by PNC). In the complaint, regulators claimed that National City had violated the FHA and ECOA by charging more than 75,000 borrowers higher loan rates based on their race or ethnicity rather than their risk level. National City’s lack of pricing guidelines resulted in black borrowers being charged an average of $159 more in extra upfront fees or higher interest than white borrowers. Black borrowers also paid an average of $228 more annually over the life of the loan than white borrowers. Hispanics paid $125 more upfront and $154 more annually than white borrowers.
