History of Citizens Bank
In the early 1960's, a group of local citizens collected their efforts and resources to establish a bank.
In 1965, Citizens Bank of Washington County received its charter and set up operations. The Bank helped individuals with loans; it also helped start-up companies and small businesses with their financial needs.
While the community's economy grew, so did Citizens Bank. In 1971, the Bank opened a south-side branch office, the first branch in the history of the community, at 818 South Harris Street.
The Bank's continuing growth necessitated the construction of a larger building. By May of 1997, construction of the new building had been completed. The Bank moved from its West Haynes Street location, which had served the community and the Bank well for many years, to its present location at 132 South Harris Street.
In November 2006, the Bank opened a loan production office in Statesboro, Georgia, and established the trade name of the location to be Citizens Bank of Bulloch County. The LPO quickly became a full service branch in early 2007. In September of 2008, branch operations were moved to their new permanent facility located at 425 Commerce Drive on the bypass.

Products & Services
My experience with this bank has been a wonderful one. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about their services. When I have had to call in the past I spoke directly to a person not a computer with number choices. This bank does not charge hidden fees for downloading transactions into my budgeting software which was a major problem with my previous bank.
Home Town Banking. I love it. I by no means have a major account but I am treated like I do. When I walk in I know a person by name to go to resolve any issue. I used to bank with Wachovia in Statesboro but a few trips where I felt rushed and was told I would get a phone call back and never did; My wife and I started looking for a new Bank. I have been with Citizens Bank for 2 years now. Oh and its the only bank that flies the Georgia Southern 6 National Championship Flags on Game Day.
