History of Lincoln 1st Bank
Located in the beautiful rolling hills of historic Morris County, Lincoln 1st Bank dates back to 1923 when a group of local civic minded business people established Lincoln Park Building and Loan Association to serve the financial needs of the local community. We outgrew our first location at 245 Main Street and moved to our current location at 31 Boonton Turnpike in 1963. Recognizing the need to serve our customers more efficiently, the bank remodeled and doubled its facilities in 1989 to accommodate our ever-growing customer base. In June of 2007, we opened our first branch office located at 193 Changebridge Road, in Montville.
In an effort to continue its growth, in March of 2015 the bank rebranded its name and tag line as Lincoln 1st Bank, “Your Bank.Your Neighbor”. As such, we look forward to continuing our long standing tradition of personalized customer service while offering our customers today’s modern banking conveniences. . Lincoln 1st Bank still retains the home town flavor and takes pride that the vast majority of our customers are from the local communities of Lincoln Park, Montville, Pequannock and Wayne. However, we will continue to focus our efforts on growing our customer base by rolling out very attractive deposit and loan products to new banking communities which will improve our future profitability.
True to our purpose, Lincoln 1st Bank has through the years provided mortgage loans to enable families to purchase their dream home. We also take pride in that we have never sold any of our mortgage loans in the secondary market. This aspect is important because you can depend on us to continue providing quality service for your loan.
With the many decades of banking experience to draw upon, Lincoln 1st Bank’s management and staff has implemented an innovative marketing plan to help generate banking relationships, not just transactions, and to provide guidelines that would enable us to better serve our customers.
Come to Lincoln 1st Bank, “Your Bank.Your Neighbor.” and experience the quality of our friendly, personalized service.
