Who We Are

We’ve been making banking EASY and supporting our local communities since 1891. We knew how to do EASY banking then and still do today!

Our Story

First Harrison Bank was established in 1891 as Savings and Loan Association of Corydon. In 1966, our name changed to First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Corydon. Later, the name changed to First Federal Savings Bank. In 2000, First Federal Savings Bank united with Harrison County Bank to become First Harrison Bank. In 2003, our family grew larger with the addition of Hometown National Bank in Floyd County, Indiana. In 2015, The Peoples Bank of Bullitt County joined our family, as well. Today, we have eighteen branch locations in Southern Indiana and Bullitt County, Kentucky.

As a community bank, decisions are made locally and customers receive friendly, personalized service. We strongly believe in giving back to the community where we live and work, and we are generous in providing our time and financial support to many charitable organizations. We know if our local communities thrive, we will too. In addition to our local schools, some of the organizations we support include Relay for Life, American Heart Association, The Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, Metro United Way, Blessings in a Backpack, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and more!

We have been voted one of the Best Places to Work in Indiana four times. We have been voted Bullitt County's Best Full Service Bank many times. We have established a reputation over the years for excellent customer service. We care about our customers, coworkers, and the Bank. Our mission is to build relationships with our customers through value-added service while maximizing shareholder value and providing rewarding employment.

We are a publicly traded company under our holding company’s name, First Capital, Inc. We encourage you to check out our Corporate Profile.

We are proud members of the Independent Community Bankers of America and Indiana Bankers Association.

One thing we pride ourselves on is the accessibility of our leadership. If you want to talk to the president of First Harrison Bank, you certainly can. Good luck doing that at a big bank! Our president and CEO, Chris Frederick, can be reached by sending him a message or calling him at 812-734-3464.
