BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (Nov. 1, 2023) – Morgantown Bank & Trust has broken ground on its third location in Warren County, marking its first bank in the rapidly growing Rich Pond area. The groundbreaking was held on Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2023, to commemorate the new 4,500-square-foot space, which is expected to be complete in June of 2024.

The multimillion-dollar investment marks Morgantown Bank & Trust’s sixth overall location, with two other banks in Morgantown, Kentucky, and a loan production office in Nashville, Tennessee. 

“Morgantown Bank & Trust is committed to supporting our local communities, and through this investment, we are proud to continue investing in the Bowling Green area,” said Jason Jones, President and CEO of Morgantown Bank & Trust. “As the first bank location in this growing section of the Rich Pond area, we will be able to make banking even more convenient to nearby homeowners and are proud to be one of the first to invest in this particular area. We are thrilled to continue expanding our services and reach and look forward to becoming a trusted source of banking for those in the area.” 

The new bank location will be located at 8051 Nashville Road. It is expected to be 3,000 square feet and will include an additional 1,500 square foot space that will be leased to another professional business that will complement the bank’s services. 

“As a city that continues to be recognized nationally for economic development, it is exciting for the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce to be part of this groundbreaking today and see local companies continue to invest in our area,” said Dawn Johnson, Vice President, Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce. “The growth we are experiencing is because of investments like these.”
