Since we first opened in 1923, Old Point has been committed to our customers and our community. Even though Old Point has grown substantially over the decades, we still operate under local management, with the same trusted name, and the same genuine concern about our customers.
Old Point launched operations from a counter inside Cooper’s Confectionary store in the Phoebus section of Hampton in January of 1923. A local doctor, a seafood dealer, and a merchant, who cared about their community, founded Old Point because they believed it would be a help to area citizens and businesses. They named the bank after Old Point Comfort lighthouse to demonstrate their commitment to being a steady, trusted resource in all kinds of economic conditions.
Old Point’s first building, completed later in 1923 on the corner of Mellen and Mallory Streets in Hampton, was described by The Daily Press as “one of the most modern in the state, with a splendid vault and safe.” The intricate 12-ton vault door would prove to be a steadfast feature of the bank and was incorporated into our current headquarters building, which opened in Downtown Hampton in 2014.
Old Point served a key role in Hampton during the Great Depression. In 1933, the federal government temporarily closed all banks to protect them from panicked citizens. At one point, Old Point was the only bank in town that made it possible for employees of the local veteran’s administration to cash their pay checks. This spirit of public service has continued through the years, with Old Point committed to helping our community prosper by supporting over 300 Hampton Roads charitable organizations. Old Point employees live, work, shop, and eat in the footprint in which we serve, and pride themselves on creating a better community, everyday. Nearly 90% of Old Point’s workforce participate in community service projects annually. Last year, employees donated thousands of hours of community service to the Hampton Roads area in addition to collecting approximately 3,200 pounds of food for local foodbanks.
