Get To Know NBDC

Our History


The bank was originally chartered on Nov. 25, 1890 as the First National Bank of Walton, and opened for business January 2, 1891. The bank was one of the few that were able to withstand the challenges of the depression.


In 1929, the bank changed its name to the National Bank and Trust Company, which it remained for almost thirty years. In 1958, the bank made its first incursion into expansion, consolidating with the Bank of Andes and becoming the National Bank of Delaware County. It eventually opened a new office in Franklin, and in June of 1997, acquired an office in Hamden. In November 2007, NBDC added the National Bank of Stamford and its Roxbury office to the NBDC family, bringing the number of total branches to six.


In September, 2014, NBDC's expansion beyond Delaware County was realized with the acquisition of six banking centers in Sullivan County. This acquisition not only doubled NBDC's banking center count and greatly expanded our geographic footprint, it also provided us with a talented new pool of employees and a customer base who we are accustomed to serving.


Throughout rich history, NBDC Bank has provided residents of Delaware County with high quality financial products like Kasasa Cash, Tunes, and Saver, our line of high yield checking and savings accounts. We offer our customers the modern conveniences of larger institutions, such as online banking, mobile banking and mobile deposit capture, while continuing to provide the personal service of a community bank.


A Commitment to Community


As an independent bank, we make it our business to reinvest in the communities we serve by making loans to individuals and businesses, and supporting community projects, events and charities.


There also exists a strong sense of volunteerism on behalf of our staff, which actively participates in the Relay for Life, Little League and other sports venues, local Fire Departments, Scouting, and the Salvation Army. Many also sit on local boards and committees around the area.
