Our History

 

Huntington Federal received its first federal charter as Huntington Federal Savings & Loan in 1934. At that time, the bank was restricted to offering personal savings accounts and home mortgages.

In 1995, all of that changed when the bank dropped ‘Savings & Loan’ from its name and officially became chartered as Huntington Federal Savings Bank. The bank’s services expanded at that time to include a broader range of deposit accounts, including checking accounts, as well as business services.

In the 1950s, Huntington Federal was located at 422 10th Street. Throughout the decade the bank grew, and it was determined in 1959 that that customers needs could be better met with a different facility. As a result, the bank constructed a new building at 1049 Fifth Street.  It remains Huntington Federal’s headquarters still today.  

In addition to its main office, the bank serves the community with four additional branch locations across Cabell, Putnam and Wayne counties. Those locations include:

  • Huntington Mall Branch in Barboursville (Cabell County)
  • East Hills Professional Center Branch (Cabell County)
  • Camden Road Branch in Huntington (Wayne County)
  • Putnam Village Branch in Teays Valley (Putnam County)

The branch at the East Hills Professional Center is the bank’s newest branch location. Built in 2008, the building’s strikingly modern in design, with a curving roof structure that ties together the branch’s interior and its drive-through lanes, won Edward Tucker Architects a merit award from the West Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Through its many years in operation, Huntington Federal is dedicated to being a financial leader in the local community and is proud to have provided thousands of mortgage loans to homebuyers and paid millions of dollars in interest to depositors.
