About Us

Traditional Bank is more than a name on a building. It is a promise to give our very best to our customers and our community every day. That may seem like a tall order. But lucky for us we’ve had more than 12 decades as a locally-owned bank to figure it out.

We love helping our customers along their financial journey. . . opening a first checking account, buying a second home, expanding a third generation business. We’re grateful to every customer who allows Traditional Bank to be a part of their story and look forward to helping families and businesses reach their goals for many years to come.
