In February of 1910 seventeen civic minded citizens of Turbotville showed faith in the future of the town by investing the sum of $25,000 to form the Turbotville National Bank. In July of the same year, a building located on Main Street was erected which was to serve as the home of the bank for nearly half a century. With Joseph Milnor appointed to serve as the bank’s first Cashier, a position later renamed President, the Turbotville National Bank was in operation.
However, Mr. Milnor resigned soon after and was replaced by George Youngman on March 1, 1911. Until his death in 1954, the bank continued to grow and progress during under the watchful eye of Mr. Youngman. The position of Cashier was filled by James Foust who previously served as the bank’s Assistant Cashier. In 1959, in order to better serve the needs of a growing community, the moved from its original location to where it stands today. Mr. Foust continued to serve as Cashier until his retirement in 1993 when he was replaced by the banks current President, P. Thomas Yoder, Jr., who has been employed by the bank since 1970.
For nearly 100 years, the bank has strived to live up to its motto of “Large enough to serve you, small enough to know you, and strong enough to protect you.” As the bank moves into its second century of service, the bank has every hope of being ever larger, to serve you better, ever stronger to protect you more, but never too large to be a friend to each one of their customers.
