Our History

182 years of banking tradition.

It all began on St. Patrick’s Day 1839 when the Northwestern Bank of Virginia opened a branch in Parkersburg. In the years to follow, the bank survived – and often thrived – through Civil War, natural disasters, recessions, and depressions, by focusing on the communities it served. Through a combination of hard work, integrity, calculated acquisitions and unrivaled customer service, United has grown to be one of the top fifty largest banking companies in the United States.

In 1987, United Bankshares, Inc. became a publicly traded company, and just a year later hit the $1 billion mark in total assets. Today, and 33 acquisitions later, United Bankshares has total assets of nearly $29 billion and 250 full-service banking offices and 20 loan origination offices in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina and Washington, D.C. – each built on customer service and commitment to the community.

Our Lucky Day

Since our founding on St. Patrick’s Day in 1839, we celebrate each anniversary by giving shamrocks to our customers.

Strength in Numbers

Recently completing the 33rd acquisition of the current administration, United has grown from a single office to one of the most successful regional financial services companies in the USA.
