History

A mutual bank committed to customers and communities

Providing value for over 148 years as your mutual bank

Our past and future successes are, and will be, the result of people working as a team: our employees, our trustees, our corporators, our customers, and our community aspiring to reach their full potential.

As a mutual bank, we are beholden to our customers, not Wall Street. This gives us the flexibility and independence to respond to your specific financial needs, rather than delivering on shareholders' quarterly profit expectations. We are here for you--we enjoy getting to know you at the branch, on the phone, or around in the neighborhood!
