120 years of service to the Susquehanna Valley

NNB 1903

The Northumberland National Bank is celebrating 120 years of providing financial products and services to individuals and businesses in the Greater Susquehanna Valley. 

Norry Bank’s story began around the turn of the 20th century when state senator and owner of the Witmer Steele Lumber Co., Charles Steele, saw the need for a local bank “people would feel comfortable with” in his hometown of Northumberland, Pennsylvania. As the wheels of progress churned, the foundational pieces of what would become Norry Bank began to fall into place. By 1903, The Northumberland National Bank had its name, funds raised, and a bank charter granted.

“Norry Bank was built on a strong foundation that has allowed us to establish long-lasting relationships and build trust with the customers and communities we serve,” said J. Todd Troxell, Norry Bank President and CEO.

Since opening its doors 120 years ago, Norry Bank has continued to grow and prosper by expanding to neighboring communities, as customers in the Greater Susquehanna Valley seek a financial institution that offers tried-and-true community bank service from personal bankers who know and understand their needs.

“As we celebrate our 120th anniversary, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the residents of the Susquehanna Valley. This celebration is more than just a commemoration of the past – it’s a promising glimpse into our future to continue our legacy as a locally-managed, independent community bank, never compromising integrity, trust, or safety while serving the people and businesses in our communities,” added Troxell.
