About Us

Our Journey
The year is 1874. West Virginia is a newly formed state, and the town of Princeton is in shambles after it was burnt to the ground by the fleeing Confederates. The Civil War is over, and the farmers and merchants who call Princeton home know it is time to rebuild. They need a bank, a place where their paychecks can be cashed, where their money can be held and where they can borrow money to rebuild the town. To make that happen, the Straley and McNutt families charter the first bank in southern West Virginia– The Bank of Princeton. This bank is one of the first four banks in the new state. We are a first in this new landscape.
