Morris Bank seeks to be the first choice for financial services in the communities we serve; second to none in quality, efficiency and integrity.
We do this by developing the highest quality team to profitably grow our customer's assets. We also give back to communities by supporting charitable initiatives where our customers live.
Morris Bank’s core values demonstrate our commitment to sharing our banking knowledge and information openly, honestly, and appropriately, and to serve our customers.
Our management and employee team uphold daily the following Code Blue principles:
So, when we’re asked, “What makes Morris Bank different?” Our response is always our people; because our team adheres to Code Blue and that ultimately feeds the successful pursuit of our mission.
As a southern staple in our nation, the live oak graces our coastal lands with the strength to leave marks in history, resilience to withstand trying times, and outstretching arms to provide shelter to those around it. In terms of leadership and perseverance, one can draw from the regal and robust qualities of these landscape anchors. In a comparison of the live oak and the tradition of a financial institution, one can find great wisdom and guidance. At Morris Bank, many of these principles mirror our daily operations, and we apply them to our long standing presence through fluctuations in the financial world.

In November 1954, when Louie Livingston made the first deposit in Morris Bank, life was simple, and business was conducted on a gentleman's word and a handshake. In our constantly changing community, we still believe in that philosophy, and our commitment to our customers is stronger than ever.
The bank was originally located on the first floor of the Morris Office Building at 200 South Jefferson Street. Founder George T. Morris served as President. In April 1963, the bank changed locations to 301 Bellevue Avenue and the Mall Office was opened in October, 1971. Construction was completed on our new main location and opened in April of 2008. Since then we’ve added office locations in Gordon, Gray and Houston County.
Times have changed and Morris Bank has grown in ways our founder could never have imagined. We now offer much more with technology that our first customers couldn’t have even dreamed of. We still say “hello” when you walk in; because Morris Bank hasn’t forgotten that our customers make all the difference.
Our “hello” is the gateway to providing a productive banking relationship for all of our customers. Call us or drop in to one of our conveniently located branches. We’d love to show you how easy and rewarding banking with us will be.
