Jarrettsville bank beginnings go way back On Feb. 22, 1870, the Jarrettsville Building Association met to offer at an auction its first loan of $400. The association was organized in 1869 to promote financial stability after the Civil War. The early directors sought to encourage home ownership and increase saving. The association constructed its own building in 1952 and later changed its name to Jarrettsville Federal Savings and Loan Association.
