First Exchange Bank began in Mannington, West Virginia with the merger of three banks, the Bank of Mannington, First National Bank of Mannington, and the Exchange Bank of Mannington. The bank was charted by the State of West Virginia on June 25, 1932, the first president of the First Exchange Bank was George W. Bowers. Since then, First Exchange Bank has made a conscious decision to remain independent and to assist in the communities we serve. Officers and staff are encouraged to participate in non-profit and service organizations to make a positive impact. The bank now has a total of six offices located in Mannington, Fairmont, Morgantown, Hundred, Fairview, and White Hall.

First Exchange Bank is a locally owned and operated bank that has been serving the communities of Marion, Monongalia, and Wetzel counties since 1932. For more information on First Exchange Bank and their commercial lending products, visit
