In 1975, neighbors looking for a new savings account found they could get something extra when they went with First County Bank (then named Stamford Savings Bank)—a four-piece place serving of Dalton Stoneware. Customers could also round out their collection of the 70’s era stoneware by purchasing a buffet platter, serving dish, set of bowls and/or a sugar & creamer set. Given recent interest in retro and vintage design, we wouldn’t be surprised to hear that some of the sets are still in use today!
While we no longer offer dinnerware when opening a new account, we continue to find new and exciting ways to encourage customers to save as with the introduction of our FirstPrize $avings account, which gives account holders a chance to win $1,000 each drawing period.

2016 is a big year for First County Bank as we celebrate not only our 165th anniversary, but also the 15th anniversary of the First County Bank Foundation. To mark these major milestones we will be digging into the archives, sharing some notable moments from our history on our blog and social media channels every other Thursday. You can follow along, or share your own memories of First County Bank history, by leaving a comment or posting a memory using #FirstCounty165.
