Banking in the Wilkes Barre Area

Wilkes-Barre is a city in the Wyoming Valley in northeastern Pennsylvania. Wilkes-Barre has a city population of only about 41,000, but it is part of a much larger metropolitan area that has more than 560,000 people. Notable cities in the region include Scranton, Williamsport, Pottsville, Kingston, Hazleton, Lewisburg, Clarks Summit, Danville, East Stroudsburg, and Stroudsburg.

The Wilkes-Barre region was for a long time one of the major coal mining centers in the U.S. and had a very strong industrial economy. A large banking industry sprouted up to service those industries, and to this day, the Wilkes-Barre region has a fairly sizable banking presence.

There are 33 banks and 66 credit unions with headquarters in the Wilkes-Barre area. Notable institutions with local headquarters include Peoples Security Bank and Trust, ESSA Bank & Trust, First National Community Bank, First Keystone National Bank, and Jersey Shore State Bank. The oldest institution still operating in the region is The Honesdale National Bank, which was established in 1836. Altogether, the Wilkes-Barre region has approximately 960 branches from nearly 75 banks and 70 credit unions.
