Community Bank, N.A.‘s roots can be traced back to 1866, when our predecessor, St. Lawrence County National Bank, was chartered. As we’ve expanded into the Northern Tier, Southern Tier, Western New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Western Massachusetts, we’ve always remembered what got us here—our customers. And it’s evident in everything we do.


For over 150 years, we’ve served the financial needs of our customers. They’re the reason we exist. Of course, many companies make that claim. At Community Bank, we take it to heart. It’s why we make such a big deal about customer service. We don’t see going the extra mile as extra at all. It’s simply business as usual.


We use the phrase “bank happy” a lot. Those two words sum up our approach to serving our customers. Sometimes it’s the big things, like a great rate on a mortgage. Other times, it’s smaller gestures, such as a sincere smile. We want to make our customers more than satisfied. We want to make them happy.
