About Us

Welcome to Calhoun Banks!

In The Beginning...

 ...we were known as The Calhoun County Bank and issued a Certificate of Incorporation by the State of West Virginia on the 14th day of November, 1900. Our humble beginning started with 250 shares of capital stock with a $100.00 par value for an initial capitalization of $25,000.00. 

The bank opened for business in January 1901 in the Willard Hotel on Main Street. 

The building was destroyed by fire in 1919. In 1929 the Calhoun County Bank merged with the Bank of Grantsville.

As we grew, we had to change locations several times until a building was built just for us on Main Street across from the Courthouse. 

As growth continued, we added an addition in 1969 to the rear of the bank and again in 1977 by acquiring the adjoining Ben Franklin Store.

A drive-thru facility was added on the corner of Court and River Streets in 1986.

As we continued to grow, we expanded with the addition of three branches. The first at Arnoldsburg in the southern half of the county in June of 1987.

Our Elizabeth branch was added to serve customers in Wirt and Wood counties.

The last addition was the Glenville branch to serve customers of Gilmer county. This branch was formerly located in Foodland Plaza. Construction was completed in 2006 on the current facility, which is located on Route 33.
