We're all about you. Except here, where it’s all about us.

Liberty Bank was first chartered in 1825. That makes us the oldest bank in Connecticut! And today, after nearly two centuries of superior personal service and unparalleled community involvement, it’s fair to say we know a little something about building and maintaining long-term relationships. We serve more than 200,000 personal and business customers. At Liberty, we go way back. But we never stop moving forward.

As a community bank we get to know you and greet you by name. Maybe that’s why we’ve been so recognized in return.
