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.
We want to take time to acknowledge our customers and say thank you. We are grateful for each of you who has 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 Bedford Office and meet our bankers. We look forward to seeing you.
As a local bank, we understand that community is important. When you walk through the doors of our main office in Lynchburg, we want you to feel welcomed and at home. Our office is located on Ole Dominion Boulevard in Bedford. Our Bedford staff members can assist you with any of your banking needs, including mortgages, personal banking, business banking, loan solutions, and more.
Bedford is home to the beloved National D-Day Memorial, a poignant memorial dedicated to the brave soldiers who fought in World War II. After your appointment, we encourage you to schedule a tour and learn more about why the memorial is located in Bedford County, Virginia. If you’re looking for a bite to eat, stop by local favorites Liberty Station or Azul. We invite you to make an appointment with us and see what makes our office, and our Bedford family, so special.
