Pentucket Bank was established when we received our Mutual Charter in March, 1891 and opened for business four hours a week at 35 Washington Street in Haverhill.
Once known as "Little Bank that Could" Pentucket Bank has grown tremendously; with six convenient Branch and office locations in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire paired with a robust suite of deposit, loan and electronic products and services for both consumers and businesses.
Today we still do not have stockholders to please or to pay dividends to. This allows us to provide a high level of personalized service to our customers and to provide stability and support to the communities we serve. Because we are not obligated to pay stockholders we can focus on our customers, the needs of our local communities and the long term development and growth of the bank and its customers. These are the major reasons why we are committed to remaining a mutual bank for many years to come.
We have also been recognized for our strong business practices by Bauer Financial Inc. an independent bank rating firm. Bauer Financial has recognized Pentucket Bank as a "Best of Bauer" bank for maintaining a 5 Star rating for 25 consecutive years! Please click here for more details about this recognition from Bauer.
