Since 1899 . . .Trust Is Earned!
The state-chartered Hancock County Building and Loan Association was founded on December 31, 1899; and it granted its first mortgage loan in the amount of $1,000 in 1900. In 1934, the company obtained its federal banking charter and then converted to a federal mutual bank charter in 1991. In 2003, Hancock County Savings Bank established a new record for mortgage loan originations (1,078 loans totaling $80.5 million).
Since 1899, we have remained steadfastly independent. In an age when bank mergers and name changes are commonplace, we have stayed the course as an independent and have focused on maintaining our role as a community leader, as well as a community lender. Creating a unique relationship with our customers, we are dedicated to the needs of our communities and to the generations of people who have called the Ohio Valley their home. As we celebrate this relationship, we also celebrate the rich heritage of hard work and loyalty of those who live in our communities; and we look forward to a bright future.
In today's ever-changing financial landscape, you can rely on our commitment to you that we will continue to strive to earn your trust as we have done for more than 100 years. As always, we welcome tomorrow and eagerly anticipate what the next 100 years will bring.
We are dedicated to fulfilling the dream of home ownership, providing a fair return on deposits, and making our community a better place to live.
Hancock County Savings Bank will continue to fulfill our role as a community bank, operating under a mutual charter that will enable us to serve our communities.
