For over one hundred years the Bank of Mount Hope has been committed to effectively serving the financial needs of our customers. The Bank of Mount Hope was founded on March 17, 1902 and is one of the oldest banks in West Virginia.

In an effort to support the growth and development of our surrounding communities the Bank expanded into the Beckley, Raleigh County market by opening a branch office on Pinewood Drive in Beckley on February 15, 1995. The Beckley Branch was so well received that the Board of Directors felt that further expansion was needed for Fayette County and on March 9, 1999, a branch office was opened in the Fountain Terrace Shopping Center in Oak Hill.

The Bank of Mount Hope takes pride in being locally owned and operated and continually strives to provide quality products and competitively priced services. We are committed to being friendly and responsive to our customer's changing needs.

It is our mission to provide our customers the best banking services possible and with the addition of this website we hope to continue to grow by meeting the needs of our customers.

Mount Hope Bankshares, Inc. is the parent company of the Bank of Mount Hope.
