The Peoples Bank of Talbotton is a full service, locally owned bank in Talbotton, Georgia. In Talbotton, a small town 35 miles northeast of Columbus, the scene has not changed much over the years. This is still the sort of place where every customer's family history is intimate knowledge and it's always, "Yessir" and "Thankee, ma'am." We know our customers, their children, their parents and in most cases their grandparents," says Peoples Bank President Henry Persons, whose family has owned the bank for the past 100 years. "We call you by your first name when you come though the door, get up and shake your hand and have a real conversation.
The town still rolls up the sidewalks early on some weekdays. But according to Henry, we are a 24X7 bank when folks really need it. "We're an anomaly. You couldn't take what we do and do it anywhere else. The reason we're still here is the people who live here still want us to be."
In these uncertain and tough economic times that the country is facing, it is good to know a bank that is stable and strong, on sound footing, is well capitalized and best of all, is ready, willing and able to lend money to deserving customers. We are community bankers and understand the value of exceptional customer service. We welcome all those who are looking for a personal, straightforward approach to banking.
After all, we have been banking for 120 years, so we have had the time to get it right!
