Where we came from...

The Bank was forced to close its doors for a short period of time during the bank holiday of the Great Depression. A group of local businessmen reorganized the bank and chartered it as the Newton National Bank. In 1977 the bank was re-titled First Newton National Bank. In 1981 First Newton National Bank acquired the adjacent building for additional space. In 1998 the Bank went through a complete interior remodeling to better utilize space and serve the public.

To this day the Bank continues to be Newton's only locally owned financial institution.
    The Bank has always been innovative in the use of new ideas and technology. First Newton National Bank was the first bank in Newton to offer ATM cards and have Automated Teller Machines. In 1997 Bank-by-Phone was added and in early 2000 the Bank began offering Internet Banking to its customers.
    First Newton National Bank is still a locally owned, "hometown" bank with a long history of providing efficient, courteous service to all its customers.
