Beginning Friday, April 16th, we will begin the final conversion process of Peoples Bank into Whitaker Bank. To ensure a smooth transition, all of our Peoples Bank of Madison County account numbers, ATM, debit and credit card numbers will remain the same with no action required on your part. Some updates to your online products are necessary as we enhance our services.

All former Peoples Bank branches in Madison and Rockcastle Counties will be closed on Saturday, April 17th and will reopen with normal business hours on Monday, April 19th under the name of Whitaker Bank. Click here for an easy to follow list of dates so you’ll know exactly what to expect and when.




Peoples Bank has been owned by the Whitaker Family since 1978. In an effort to expand service availability, Peoples Bank will become branches of Whitaker Bank on December 1, 2020. This change will allow our customers to access full service banking at all 36 Whitaker Bank and 9 Peoples Bank locations.
