The year was 1933. Individuals and businesses were facing the most difficult financial times in United States history, and banks around the country were closing their doors. A group of Greenwood, S.C. businessmen got together to form a financial institution that would serve community members in good times and in bad. They called their new venture The County Bank. Through the history of the bank, that mission has never changed. It remains an independent, locally owned institution that is focused on meeting the financial needs of the families and businesses of the counties it serves. Today, Countybank is a full service, integrated financial services provider with three full-service locations and five automatic teller machines. In addition to a full array of traditional banking products, Countybank is composed of separate divisions that are positioned to meet specialized financial needs, including Countybank Trust Services, Countybank Mortgage Services, Countybanc Investments, Inc., and Countybanc Insurance.
