About Us

Website Infographic


Traditional Bank is not new to community banking. Our story begins in 1902 when two banks were formed in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky. In 1988 they merged, and that new bank would ultimately become known as Traditional Bank. Since the merger in 1988, all of the bank’s growth has been organic. We have not purchased any banks, but have instead grown through referrals from satisfied clients. And we think that says a lot about how we do business. We have always believed that people make the difference and that great service is what sets us apart. Today we couple those principles with a broader geographic reach, best in class commercial bankers and customer-focused technology so we can remain competitive while still giving our customers the personal banking experience they deserve.  Our business is you.
