Who We Are


Our History

OneSouth Bank, formerly Bank of Early was established in April 1941 in Blakely, Georgia and is proud to be your local community bank serving Blakely, Georgia and the surrounding area.  As business has continued to grow,OneSouth Bank has expanded with two additional offices.    In 1998, we opened in Dawson, Georgia using the trade name, The Georgia Bank of Dawson at 917 Forrester Drive, SE until 2015 when the name was changed to OneSouth Bank to reflect continuity in our branding. In September of 2011 we opened a Loan Production Office in Macon, Georgia using the trade name, OneSouth Bank. In February 2015, OneSouth Bank in Macon, Georgia became a full service bank.

We offer a full menu of banking products designed with your financial needs in mind. Our mission is to deliver exceptional customer service through our commitment to operational excellence, uncompromising integrity and community leadership. Small enough to know you. Strong enough to serve you.

In 2019, in order to bring more products, services, and continuity of brand we changed our name to OneSouth Bank.  Our Directors and Staff remain the same, while we broaden our scope of service beyond the borders of Early County, Georgia to better serve our existing and new customers.
