History

At Athol Savings Bank, we are truly “Proud of Our Past, [and] Focused on the Future.”

Athol Savings Bank originated in 1867 when a group of local men in Athol, MA had a concept of beginning a local savings bank that would offer financial deposit and lending services to the residents of the small New England town. Many banking relationships were formed around the kitchen table or out in the farmer's pasture, when the banking employees went out into the community to seek new relationships. Banking, in those days, consisted of verbal agreements sealed with a handshake.

Although banking products and services have vastly changed today, ASB still maintains the same small-town friendly banking environment that was born over 140 years ago. The same principles and philosophies remain a constant part of the ASB culture, and its employees are as dedicated and committed to providing quality customer service as they were over 140 years ago.

ASB is a mutual savings bank, owned by the customers of the Bank. We are proud to have financial strength and stability that has never wavered over the course of many years. Through the Great Depression, World Wars, and bouts of economic instability, ASB has remained strong and well-capitalized.

ASB now offers seven convenient branches located in Athol, Baldwinville, Winchendon, Ashburnham, Gardner, and Barre. We are committed to offering products and services that are based on our customers’ needs; and as those needs change, we continue to develop enhancements and new technology to serve them.

As a true community bank, ASB will always welcome our customers face-to-face with a team that you will know and recognize. And we will always look forward to connecting with those who prefer to bank electronically – anytime, anywhere.
