The first meeting of the Middletown Savings Bank was held on November 12, 1907 in a back room of what was then Grangers Mutual Fire Insurance Company. It was decided at the meeting held later that month to purchase the property where the Middletown Municipal Center is now located for a sum of $2,595. The actual construction was started in 1909, with occupancy occurring in February 1910. The bank transacted business between February 1908 and February 1910 in temporary space acquired.
On August 2, 1937, Middletown Savings Bank bought out the failing Valley Bank and moved across the street. At a Board of Directors meeting held August 20, 1965, it was decided to change the name from Middletown Savings Bank to Middletown Valley Bank.
On February 24, 1978, the Board of Directors voted to purchase 60,000 square feet of property at the proposed Middletown Valley Center, and on June 16, 1980, the Middletown branch opened for business. The branch has since been expanded to include five drive-up windows and an ATM.
On November 17, 1987, MVB acquired the Jefferson branch from Maryland National Bank with total assets of $9,000,000. In July of 1992, the bank held a grand opening for the new building complete with four drive-up windows and ATM. In 1998, the bank purchased property on Ventrie Court in Myersville.
