Home Bank SB was chartered in 1890 as a mutual institution which essentially means that it is owned by its depositors. Without private ownership or stockholders, the bank’s profits are allocated entirely to its capital reserves, resulting in greater fiscal strength and resources for community support. Home Bank serves South Central Indiana with offices in Morgan, Hendricks, and Johnson Counties.
