In the late 1960s, a group of local businessmen and community leaders found there to be a need for a locally owned, community minded financial institution to better serve the banking needs of Barbour County. By June 2, 1970, Barbour County Bank opened for business. The bank quickly established itself as a community leader and provider of safe and secure banking products. In 1986, the success of the bank led the leaders to establish a holding company, Appalachian Financial Corporation, which acquired ownership of Barbour County Bank.
As further demand grew for a bank that was not only locally owned but also well-capitalized, the decision was made to expand into Harrison County. Now that the bank was able to offer the community loans and deposit products that were very competitive and delivered with exceptional customer service, further expansion followed and the bank’s name was changed to BCBank.
Continuing to reap the success of delivering banking services with exceptional care and deep concern for the community, BCBank has become one of the safest and most reliable banking institutions in North Central West Virginia. Times have changed since that time in 1970 when we first opened our doors, but some things have stayed the same. We still have a desire to provide the communities we serve with banking products and services built with integrity, and delivered with security from a name you have grown to trust. At BCBank, we help you keep your promises, just as we strive to keep ours.
