Credit Union History: From then to now...

Heritage South Credit Union was originally chartered in 1937 as the Avondale Employees Federal Credit Union. The credit union was originally established to provide basic financial services to employees of the Avondale Mills in Sylacauga, AL.

After many years and a couple of name changes, Heritage South Credit Union continues to have a strong presence in Sylacauga, Childersburg, and Moody as a fixture in the community and as a stable and secure financial institution.

From those modest beginnings in 1937, Heritage South Credit Union has grown to over $95 million in assets and over 10,000 members.
