I know what you were wondering: passumpsic is a Native American word meaning “clear running water.” The Passumpsic River is a tributary of the Connecticut River, which runs through St. Johnsbury, Vermont.

Currently Vermont’s fourth largest bank, Passumpsic Bank was founded in 1853 as the Passumpsic Savings Bank. In one of those small town coincidences, Passumpsic Savings Bank shared a building for six years with the original Passumpsic Bank, which was a separate commercial bank. The Bank rebranded just months ago.

Effective in the fall of 2018, we have adopted that old name, but make no mistake: We are the new Passumpsic Bank! We weren’t bought out and didn’t fall prey to a corporate takeover. Going back to that classic name better reflects who we are and what we provide to our customers. Yes, we are still a savings bank.
