Our History – Taking Banking to Our Neighbors

West Union Bank began doing business in 1893 at the corner of Columbia and Court Streets in West Union, Doddridge County, and continued there until 1973 when the Bank moved to its current location at 212 Main St. West Union, WV 26456.

In response to the popularity of the Bank’s services outside of its home county, West Union Bank began opening new offices, the first in 1986 in Salem, Harrison County, and the second in 1989 in Pennsboro, Ritchie County. The Bank’s continued growth led to the construction of an addition to the West Union office in 1997 to provide additional space.

In 2002, West Union Bank added a fourth office at Harrisville in Ritchie County. In 2005, a fifth office opened at Clarksburg in Harrison County.

We value the communities we serve, and we serve them with time and money.
