About Us


Exchange Bank proudly serves as Etowah County’s only locally owned bank. Since 1909 we have been an active growing part of this community, committed to meeting the needs of the people. This commitment is as strong today as it was 103 years ago when we opened our doors as First State Bank of Altoona.

We believe in taking an active part of the community because we are a part of it. We live here, work here, and our kids go to schools here. Through the years we have supported many local charities, civic organizations and schools with donation of time and money.

As our community has grown, so have we. With five full service offices located throughout Etowah County, we make banking convenient for our customers. We understand convenience is important, so in addition to our five full service offices, we offer five local ATM’s, Exchange Info-line (24 hour telephone banking), bank by mail with postage paid both ways, and Internet banking.

We invite you to visit with us for your total banking needs. You will find we offer a range of services from local professionals, with decisions made right here at home.
