Three community banks completed acquisitions Friday.
Tower Bancorp of Harrisburg, Pa., bought the $2.7 billion-asset First Chester County Corp. for $49.5 million. The deal was originally valued at $65 million, but the price was lowered after First Chester's delinquencies increased. The former First National Bank of Chester, which has 49 branches in Pennsylvania and Maryland, will operate as a division of Graystone Tower Bank, under the name 1N Bank.
