“Tuesday, Nov. 1, marks the actual day in 1872 when Ohio Valley Bank opened its doors in Gallipolis at the Shober Block building, located on Second Ave. across from the City Park. I’m now sitting in an office just up the block from that location in a building constructed by the company in 1896,” Tom Wiseman, OVB Chairman said. “Our 150th year as a company certainly has been an active one. We recently opened our newest Ohio Valley Bank location in Ironton. With the Ironton Office, we are thrilled to expand both our banking services as well as our Community First Mission to Lawrence County. We are also continuing to celebrate our 150 years as an independent, community bank with special customer events and giveaways across all of our locations. Most importantly, we are pleased to begin the next 150 years as an independent, community bank, and we thank our shareholders for making that possible.”
