In 1871, a group of public-spirited citizens founded Ridgefield Bank to provide for the financial well-being of residents and businesses in Ridgefield and neighboring communities. Three years later in Norwalk, another forward-looking civic group established Fairfield County Savings Bank.
In January 2004 the two banks united to become Fairfield County Bank. In 2006 the Bank was reorganized as a mutual holding company operating under the name of Fairfield County Bank.
The mutual holding company has more than $1.5 billion in assets, and has 18 locations with branches in Bridgeport, Danbury, Darien, Georgetown, Fairfield, Norwalk, Ridgefield, Rowayton, Stamford, Trumbull, Westport and Weston.
Their founding fathers could never have imagined the growth and energy of their communities today. Technology has enabled them to provide information and service in a way that could not have been foreseen in 1871. And while they continually strive to provide service in the manner that is the most effective for their customers, one thing has remained constant for more than 140 years: their strong tradition of service to their customers and dedication to their communities.
They are proud of their heritage and the success of their organization. Their success would not have been achieved had it not been for the loyalty and support of their customers and communities. They remain committed to their mission to provide a broad spectrum of financial services to their customers and to sustain their reputation as an exceptional and dependable service provider.
