On December 26, 1817 the county of Perry was formed from Fairfield, Washington, and Muskingum Counties. The naming of Perry County derived from the victorious naval commander Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, who became a famous American War Hero after defeating the British in a naval battle in 1813.
Our institution derives its name from that famous American war hero, Commodore Perry. The tall ship you see in the bank’s logo is a rendering of the US Brig Niagara, which Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry sailed, fought, and defeated the British with on Lake Erie in 1813. We feel that the rendering of the Brig Niagara will be a great image that will reflect the history, strength, service, tradition and pride of COMMODORE BANK.
Since 1928, Commodore Bank has been serving the residents and business of a four county area with headquarters in Somerset, Ohio. With offices in Millersport, Somerset, and Hebron; Commodore Bank strives to continue its foundation of having great Hometown Community Spirit and Hometown Community Pride.
