Who We Are
BCT is a special place. We have a culture, a special sauce, that is easy to taste but hard to explain. We are proud of our independence as an authentic community bank. We enjoy cultivating remarkable customer experiences. We revere the vitality of tradition while embracing progress. We understand our success must include customer and community successes. So, in an effort to define our special sauce, all of our employees came together in 2018 with a challenge to define our vision and explain what is the heart of BCT. Below is what our employees determined was the heart of BCT.
In 1871, a group comprised of 38 far-sighted Jefferson County, West Virginia farmers, orchardists, and business leaders saw the need for a bank to serve as a stabilizing influence in Jefferson County. Bank of Charles Town was founded. It was neighbor helping neighbor. It was that simple, and still is. The communities we serve are the communities we call home. We practice Neighbor Helping Neighbor.
We believe we're in a unique position to improve the well-being of businesses and individuals in our communities, and we continue to be delighted in the opportunity to do so.
Today, we are BCT-Bank of Charles Town throughout the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia and BCT-The Community's Bank in Hagerstown, Maryland and Loudoun County, Virginia.
BCT - Rooted In Tradition. Growing Our Communities.
