Our History

It all started in 1888. The Galion Building and Loan Association was opened for business with 1,000 shares valued at $200 each; and its mission: “The purpose for which this corporation is formed is for profit, to raise money to be loaned among its members and depositors for use in buying lots, building and repairing houses, and other purposes.”


And so the story of Galion Building and Loan Association – now Galion Building and Loan Bank – began. Over the past century plus, the management and staff of GB&L have been diligent in their mission to help those who seek financial assistance from the institution.


Whether a federally-insured savings or checking account, a loan for the family’s new or used car or truck, or a loan to expand your business – we believe you’ll find the management and staff at GB&L capable and ready to provide sound financial assistance whatever your need might be.


We strive to be a full-service independent community bank, and remain committed to the Galion area residents. Every effort has been made to improve the quality of service for our customers, making use of the latest in banking technology available today.


Galion Building and Loan Bank is proud of our heritage in Galion since 1888, and excited about the future of GB&L and all those we strive to serve.
