IRONTON, Ohio - Ohio Valley Bank will be expanding into Lawrence County with a new office set to open later this summer.

The office, which will be located in the Ironton Hills Plaza, will feature a lobby, night deposit and a drive-thru ATM. Terri Taylor, OVB Lawrence County region manager, said she was looking forward to bringing the bank’s community-focused services into Lawrence County.

“We are thrilled to not only expand our footprint into Lawrence County, but to bring OVB’s Community First mission to the area. OVB has a proud 150 year history of serving our customers’ financial needs through local decision making and a comprehensive offering of lending and deposit accounts,” Taylor said. “I personally invite you to become part of the OVB family.”
