Why Us

First Mutual Bank was formed in 2018 when Belpre Savings Bank and Doolin Security Savings Bank joined forces, combining the strengths of two community banks into one even stronger community bank to better serve our customers and ensure we remain local.
As a depositor-owned bank, First Mutual Bank is focused on helping you, our customers, and creating vibrant communities in the Mid-Ohio Valley Region. Being depositor-owned also means we are accountable to our customers, not shareholders. Deposit dollars are reinvested in our communities, and collectively we strengthen and help the local economy thrive.
First Mutual Bank is affiliated with First Mutual Holding Co., one of the largest member-owned mutual holding companies of its kind in the Midwest. That means we can offer a wide range of products and services to help our customers build a stronger financial future, while remaining a hometown bank that understands your needs to deliver a truly unique, personalized banking relationship.
We were formed in 2018, but our heritage and commitment to the communities we serve date back to the 1800s. Doolin Security Savings Bank traces its roots to 1896 when a group of local citizens established Doolin Building and Loan Association in New Martinsville, West Virginia to serve as a depository for savings that could be made available for home loans. Belpre Savings Bank has proudly served as the trusted hometown bank for the residents and businesses of Belpre, Ohio, and its surrounding areas since 1902.
Because we are stronger together, you can count on First Mutual Bank being here for you and the community for years to come. Our vision for today and the future is to grow, maintain stability, and continue to put our customers and our communities first—in every decision we make.

Community Says

My favorite part of my job is interacting with my coworkers, they make coming to work very enjoyable!


I would like to thank First Mutual Bank, in particular DeAnn Cummings, for all the help in securing funding through the PPP program. This enabled us to continue to operate and supply the community with its printing needs. Thanks again!
