About Us

Bank of Montgomery was established on June 9, 1903 in Montgomery, Louisiana. Local businessmen saw a need for a financial institution to open to help the needs of Grant Parish.


The Bank opened its doors with $15,000 in capital. The local businessmen who helped found the Bank and served as the first Board of Directors were President-J.M. Wardlow, and Vice President-J.H. Williams, J.A. Fletcher, D.B. Wardlow, W.M. Adler, T.J. Harrison, J. E. Ethridge, W. L. Bowty, and John Irving McCain.

BOM expanded into Natchitoches Parish by opening a location in Derry, Louisiana in 1996. When we opened our Derry location, the bank had 18 million in assets and now the bank has grown to over $ 1 billion in assets with over $109 million in capital. BOM employs over 165 staff members among 19 branches in Grant, Natchitoches, Sabine, Bienville, Bossier, Caddo, Rapides Parish in Louisiana in addition to Sabine and Angelina County in Texas serving over 32,500 customers.

In 2006, BOM opened BOM Financial Services to offer insurance and investment opportunities to our customers and the community.  In 2016 BOMFS acquired The Traber Agency, which was a local 100 year old independent insurance agency. Celebrating their 17 year Anniversary in 2023, they have grown to over 3,500 customers. BOM Financial Services is a wholly owned subsidiary of BOM.

“As a community bank, BOM takes pride in offering the best products and services for our customers, strives to promote and revitalize our communities by volunteering and providing financial literacy, and invest in our staff by continuing their banking education. ”
