About Monticello Banking Company
When Monticello Banking Company first opened in 1895, we did our bookkeeping by hand. Our transportation to work was on horseback and no one had ever heard of air-conditioning. Today, over 125 years later, Monticello Banking Company has seen a lot of things come and go. We were one of the few banks in Kentucky that survived the great depression. Our banking standards reflect the quality and traditions of our founders. The same dedication to superior service that made us successful in 1895 is still with us today. No endorsement is stronger than a satisfied customer who returns to do business again. It’s the ruler by which a business is measured and our long service record stands as a testimony of our ability to adapt and respond to the ever changing needs of this community.
