Full Service Banking in Amherst

Bank of the James opened for business in July 1999.  Since then, we’ve grown from a new bank with 12 employees and one location to a local regional bank with multiple offices covering much of Virginia, over 150 employees, and a reputation in the communities we serve as a trusted bank and a reliable community partner.

To our customers and community, thank you.  We are grateful to those who have trusted Bank of the James to be their bank of choice.  As national banks are merging or leaving our local communities, Bank of the James is here to serve you.  If you are looking for a new banking relationship, we would love to meet you.  Call us or stop by the Amherst Office and meet our employees.   We look forward to seeing you.

Monday-Thursday: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
