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 Downtown Lynchburg Office and meet our bankers.   We look forward to seeing you.

Bank of the James is a local bank located conveniently in Downtown Lynchburg, Virginia.

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 Main Street in downtown Lynchburg in one of the tallest buildings in the city. Our Lynchburg staff members can assist you with any of your banking needs, including mortgages, personal banking, business banking, loan solutions, and more. 

Downtown Lynchburg is the heart of our community. After your appointment, you can grab a bite to eat at a number of incredible restaurants. Some of our favorite local Lynchburg gems are RA Bistro, Jimmy’s on the James and The Depot Grille. A little further down the road, you can pick up a taco or two from El Jefe, or grab a cup of coffee from the White Hart. One of the best times to visit the downtown area is on Wednesday or Saturday, when the Lynchburg Community Market is bustling with business. We invite you to make an appointment with us and see what makes our office, and our Lynchburg family, so special.

Monday – Thursday: 9:00AM to 5:00PM
Friday: 9:00AM to 6:00PM

We love Bank of the James! After our experiences with large banks that do not care about us, the personal attention we receive at BoJ is so refreshing. When my friends tell me how their large banks mistreat them with like a commodity they don't mind losing, I love to tell them how Bank of the James has never treated us that way. They know our names and treat us as if they value our business. My trips to the bank are always enjoyable.

Great local bank with an emphasis on personal customer service. You are valued as a customer and not just a number and bank account.

Bank of the James has been great to work with. It is often difficult to find personalized service at a national or regional bank, but BotJ has hit the sweet spot of small-town service and big-city features. Thanks!
