Note From CEO

Thank you for visiting us.

In 1963, six area business people came together to start a bank to serve Athens County. More than 50 years later, superior service and expanded customer relationships are still our highest priority.

We view customer relationships as a long-term commitment. We believe relationship banking means being invested in your personal financial goals as well as the growth of small business in our county.

Our Board of Directors, management and staff live in the communities we serve. Many were born here. With locations in Athens, Albany, Coolville and The Plains, we are proud that our decisions are made locally and that we are an alternative to larger, commercial banks whose decision makers are at some distant location.

Hocking Valley Bank has established a tradition of being an integral part of the communities we serve. We support worthwhile efforts of local organizations, educational and health systems, our county library and youth activities. We want to be your bank of choice and look forward to taking care of you.
