My husband and I have done business with this bank for at least 40 years. The employees are always very helpful. It's a great bank!

The best bank in Claiborne County. Its the only one I use.

Great group of people here!!

Best place to bank. I've been a customer for years.

The ONLY place to do banking!!!

The People are really nice and helpful

We have been married 24 yrs and we have always used First Century Bank. The employees are very kind and knowledgable! They are always willing to help us in anyway they can with our banking needs. And they are locally owned.

Some of the nicest people you will ever meet! Stacy went above and beyond her duty to help me out! More companies need more people like her working for them!!

An awesome bank, the staff is great to work with, and after shopping around they had the best options for business accounts.

[We] are very pleased with the bank's service. Worked with Austin for a loan to purchase property. We live in PA and he handled everything from helping us with a surveyor to settlement. Never had to leave PA to do it. Great service and look forward to working with your bank in the future. Thank you for everything.

We have used First Century now for 2 home loans! Denise has been a dream to work with and helped us so much along away! She has been extremely patient and answered all my crazy questions!! We could not have had a better experience with Denise and First Century!! I highly recommend them!

Great bank! Great people!
