A century and a half ago, almost every town had at least one bank they could call their own. These institutions were the financial heart of the community, fueling its growth during the good times and feeling its pain during the downturns. When the railroad expanded to Western Massachusetts in the mid-1800's, its workers needed a bank they could call their own. Hampden Bank was chartered in 1852 to fill that niche and today is filling another.
Based at the fiber optic crossroads of New England, Hampden Bank created hampdenbank.com to serve the unique online financial needs of Western Massachusetts residents. Hampdenbank.com is a federally protected bricks & mortar bank, ten (10) full-service branches and an extensive ATM network.
Our roots in Western Massachusetts are strong and deep. Most of our associates volunteer their time in the communities in which we do business. Recently we established the Hampden Savings Foundation to provide grants to non-profit, community based organizations in Western Massachusetts. Groups like Habitat for Humanity and the Community Music School of Springfield benefit from grants from the Hampden Savings Foundation.
Hampden Bank is a very financially sound banking company which is insured by both the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Depositors Insurance Fund. That means that all of the money you have on deposit with us is insured in full. Our team of banking professionals is second to none.
