The First National Bank of Groton is locally owned, customer driven, community bank. We maintain a local focus that promotes growth by investing back into the same neighborhoods where our deposits come from. All decisions are made by people who know the local market and understand the needs of our customers. We know our customers by name, and vice-versa. We take pride in providing a superior level of personalized customer service, along with a blend of traditional banking products and innovative online and mobile services. As of December 31, 2017, our assets totaled over $170 million. All of our employees are area residents, which means we have the same personal investment in the community as our customers.
Established in 1865, The First National Bank of Groton has served the surrounding communities for over 150 years. Customers for life, one day at a time” is our mission. Our long history includes many interesting details:
  • In 1896, when she was elected President of The First National Bank of Groton, Welthea M. Marsh became one of the first women in the United States to serve as President of a national bank.
  • Following the Emergency Banking Act of 1933, The First National Bank of Groton was one of the first financial institutions determined by the Treasury Department to be solvent, making it one of the first to be re-opened.
  • Our annual Customer Appreciation Day is widely recognized and eagerly awaited each year! Employees grill and serve the famous “quarter-pound” hot dogs for our customers and the entire community at each of our offices.
  • We open our lobbies to customers and the community as a way to showcase their artwork, their collections, and local memorabilia. Our Groton office features a thirty-foot mural, painted by a local artist, depicting the Village of Groton in 1900.
Our two locations are conveniently located in Groton and Moravia, NY. The First National Bank of Groton is a member of the FDIC and an Equal Housing Lender.
