Parkesburg National Bank is a historic bank building located at Parkesburg, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It was built in two sections; the older dating to 1883 and the second from about 1900. Both are three-story, brick structures on banked basements. The older section has a patterned slate mansard roof with rounded dormer windows in the Second Empire style. The addition is faced in concrete, with floral patterns, a lion's head, and the bank's insignia. It is generally in the Classical Revival style. The building has been converted to apartments.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
