Southern Bank is truly unique, and our vision is quite simple:

To be the Bank of Preference by delivering a distinctive banking experience and unsurpassed dedication to our customers and community.

We are large enough to offer the most innovative and convenient banking technologies of today, such as Online Banking, yet small enough to give our customers the smalltown, personal attention they’ve been getting since 1901. In the age of mega-banks and mergers, we strive to afford our customers the best of both worlds, combining hometown service with the best in banking technologies available today.
