Established in the year of 1910, Somerville Bank has a long history of providing services to consumers in the Southwestern region of the State of Ohio. By the year of 1990, it expanded to a total of seven branches – all offering full services. In the year of 2010, the financial institution celebrated 100 years of service. In 2018, the institution became an Ohio Chartered Bank. In recent months, we have created and implemented a brand-new website for our clients. In this brief guide, we will provide details on the changes associated with that new site.
The Home Page
In exploring the home page of our new website, you will immediately find that the area is cleaner and easier to navigate than our previous site. Right on that page, you will get a glimpse into our earliest days through an historical image and a brief outline of our expansive history. As you continue down, you will be able to clearly see the Mission Statement. The information contained on this page outlines how our history meets today to provide a promising future. Our Mission includes:
- Providing financial products and a variety of services at the lowest costs possible
- Ensuring top capitalization and high returns for our shareholders
- Establishing a high-quality establishment for our employees
- Encouraging support with community-based services that will provide enhancements to the quality of life for individuals
As you visit our new website, you will quickly discover that we have created it so that you – the user – reap the most benefits. Our user-friendly navigational features allow you to gain direct access to that which is most important to you – be it consumer interests, business interests, services, or if you simply want to learn about us.
Our goal is to make it easier and quicker to learn about the services and solutions that we offer. Our newly designed website is highly interactive and provides instantaneous access to the information that matters to you!

We then run that information and work closely with you to create a loan that will allow you to step into that new vehicle and drive away!
