About Us

Our History

Founded in 1902, First South Bank has served the eastern and central North Carolina market for over 100 years. We have grown to thirty-two (32) full-service branch offices from Durham to Buxton and Elizabeth City to Wilmington. Banking products and services have evolved, however, the Bank’s commitment to its community has never wavered.

Our Story
