Strengthening our Communities since 1909

Your Hometown Bank

It's about looking out for our customers with better banking options and quick, local decisions. It's about supporting local community organizations and working with local businesses that are so vital to our communities. And more than anything, it's about people - local people who are passionate about serving the needs of the valuable customers and businesses that make each community unique.

Established in 1909 in Danville, Virginia, we have a long legacy of helping people and communities thrive. With multiple banking locations in Virginia and North Carolina, we are proud to be your community's hometown bank.
