June Gregg, from Bainbridge, Ohio, celebrated her 100th birthday at the Chillicothe branch of Huntington National Bank on Tuesday, June 2, 2011, according to reports by several news sites.

Gregg owns a 1913 original bank account in Huntington National Bank, formerly named Savings Bank at 1 North Paint Street.

Her father, Gilbert, opened a savings account for her in January 1913, a year before World War 1, and has held on to the account since that time. The savings account of Gregg comes with a little blue passbook and was opened with an initial deposit of $6.11. Gregg‘s father was a farmer who raises corn, wheat and hay.

Reports say that Gregg‘s account number changed only once, during the time that Huntington acquired the bank in 1980.

According to Huntington National Bank general manager, Doug Shoemaker, as a birthday gift they will increase Gregg‘s interest rate to 5 percent over the next 100 days which is considered to be 5 times the average going rate.
