In 1903 when The Peoples Bank of Taylorsville was founded, if you wanted to do your banking, you made your way to the bank by horse. Today you can pick up your smart phone, tablet or laptop and take care of many of your banking needs.

On February 2, 1903 when Dr. E.T. McMahan was employed as cashier of The Peoples Bank, he had a deposit account and a loan account to offer the bank’s customers. Today, bank CEO Steve Bowman says they offer a large array of deposit products that include Free Checking, Performance Checking, Free Business Checking, Money Market and Certificates of Deposit. The loan department offers Fixed Rate Mortgage Loans, Construction Loans, Home Equity Lines of Credit, Commercial Loans, Auto Loans, Agricultural Loans and Personal Loans. Other services The Peoples Bank offers are debit cards, ATMs, safe deposit boxes, direct deposit, online banking, and mobile banking to name a few.

The Peoples Bank of Taylorsville was organized in 1903 by W.C. Barrickman, George A. Van Dyke, F.G. Greenwell, Edward Williams, George B. Shindler, Joseph Tucker, J.W. Hill, A.J. Offutt, Z.A. Carrithers and James B. Ashby. Today, William G. Porter, Jack C. Porter, Larry H. Cheek, Glen Goebel, Charles Tichenor, W. Brian Porter, Maria Bouvette and Steve G. Bowman are the bank’s board of directors that have led the bank through the last several years and will lead it into the future.

In 1936, The Peoples Bank purchased the building they currently reside in, from The Bank of Taylorsville. The Bank has done many additions and renovations over the years to have its modern day offices located at 23 West Main Street in historic downtown Taylorsville. In 1998 the Bank opened a branch bank located at 5511 Taylorsville Road, to service the Elk Creek area.

Although many things have changed over the last 112 years of The Peoples Bank of Taylorsville’s existence, the one thing that has not changed is the way the bank does business. It’s local people making local decisions about their customer’s needs.

Many of the bank’s employees serve on local boards, volunteer for local charities and take part in making the Spencer County community a better place to live. The recent Relay for Life had the bank employees donating items to auction off in a silent auction to raise funds for the Relay team. They then set up a tent and participated in the activities for the night of Relay for Life.

Maybe one of our customers sums it up best. Robert Yates, a long-time Spencer County businessman, said: “The bank employees are very helpful with my financial needs and always nice.”

The Peoples Bank prides itself in good customer service. As Bowman says, “Just good sound banking.” In other words, nothing fancy - just the way it used to be and we think it should be.
