Why Us

What Makes Us Different?

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. That’s what sets First Mutual Bank apart from the other banks.

Although we were formed in 2018 when Belpre Savings Bank and Doolin Security Savings Bank joined forces, 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.

Strimer Business Loan Testimonial

We love working with our local businesses and making their financing journey as smooth as possible! Take it from Dr. Strimer, one of our business customers, who feels the same about working with our experienced team members.

Our loan officer Haley Meredith did a fantastic job and was wonderful to work with.
