The Early Days of Somerville Bank

History

The Somerville National Bank was established in 1910. The Bank remained a small institution for many years providing local service in Southwestern Ohio. Until 1989, Somerville National Bank was the smallest nationally chartered bank in the United States. From 1990 until the present, the bank has grown to seven full-service branches in Ohio. In April 2010, the Bank celebrated its 100th anniversary!

As of January 1st 2018, we became an Ohio Chartered Bank and changed our name to Somerville Bank, while still offering the same services to local customers as we have been for the past 111 years.

Our experience continues on. Currently, all of our senior management have been with the bank for over 20+ years. Each of them has over 30+ years of banking experience, with most of that experience occurring in Preble County, Ohio. Several of the local bank’s employees have tenure with the bank of 10+ years. The stability of our employees adds to the stability of the bank and to our knowledge of the market areas we serve.
