On June 28th, 1842 The Willimantic Savings Institute opened its doors on the second floor of the Windham Cotton Company Mill with a promise to serve the thriving and growing Windham community and surrounding areas.  Much has changed over the last 175 years but one constant has been this Institution’s commitment to its customers and the communities it serves.  Over the years, the Bank has expanded its borders, growing from that single second floor location to 24 offices spanning two states with nearly $1.6 billion in assets entrusted to their care.
