First National Bank in Suffield, Connecticut has a history that goes back to the 1800s that started with founders Henry Fuller, Daniel W. Norton and William L. Loomis.  These men organized The First National Bank of Suffield under a three week old law authorizing a system of national banks. The Bank's charter, number 497, was received on July 12, 1864, and First National Bank in Suffield, Connecicut became one of the oldest national banks in the United States when it opened for business on Monday morning, October 3, 1864.

Daniel Norton served as the first bank president.  The board of directors consisted of Henry Fuller, William L. Loomis, Henry Endress, W. H. Fuller, Henry Kent, Burdett Loomis, Byron Loomis, Martin Sheldon, I. Luther Spencer and Aretus Rising.  The first building occupied by the bank was located at the intersection of Main Street and Mountain Road in Suffield before moving to 30 Bridge Street in Suffield Village.  The bank made it through the Great Depression and now thrives as a modern bank with branch offices and electronic banking services.
