Celebrating 100 Years
Return to St. Mary's Bank

The Beginning of an Incredible Legacy
St. Mary’s Bank is America’s first credit union, and the first financial institution in the nation to put the people’s needs before profit.  What started in 1908 as a mission to provide banking services to local immigrants has since grown into a movement 90 million members strong.  Our founders set a new standard in banking excellence that carried us through tough economic times and serves to this day as our blueprint for creating opportunities for New Hampshire individuals, families and businesses.  You don’t have to be a credit union member to appreciate our history, but it may inspire you to become one.
