About Us

Wayne Bank takes pride in having the friendly personal touch that has been our hallmark when we began as a simple storefront operation in 1871. Today, our Community Office employees still know most of our customers on a first name basis and are eager to provide new customers with outstanding personal service. The bank is stronger and more secure than ever, having become one of the premiere financial institutions in Northeastern Pennsylvania and Upstate New York.

Early financing included everything from boat building and harness manufacturing to tanneries and farming. The shutdown of the Canal at the end of the 19th century forced the Bank to change with the times by financing the expansion of the county into other industries such as glassworks, textile factories and logging. In 1924, the Bank moved to the present headquarters between 7th and 8th Streets on Main Street.

Wayne Bank now has 26 Community Offices in two states and six counties, including Wayne, Pike, Monroe, and Lackawanna Counties in Pennsylvania, and Delaware and Sullivan Counties in New York State. Today, Wayne Bank has grown to $1.1 billion in asset size and employs more than 200 local people.

Norwood Financial Corp, a bank holding company, was created in 1996, with Wayne Bank as a subsidiary. Stock is traded on the Nasdaq National Market under the symbol NWFL

In a world of sudden start-up financial institutions, and just as sudden disappearances, Wayne Bank possesses an impressive longevity that will provide security for its customer, well into the future.
