In 1905, a diverse group of people had a common vision to create a banking alternative for area residents. The Honesdale Dime Bank received its authority in the form of a Charter from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to begin operations on Dec. 16, 1905, and opened its doors on Jan. 2, 1906.

“We are proud of our history and all of our accomplishments, and we look with optimism to the future,” said Gary C. Beilman, president and CEO. “Important in the development of The Dime Bank was its simplistic, philosophic, and cultural outlook. For 110 years The Dime Bank has maintained the same principles of bringing our communities support and cultural enrichment while providing trusted, dependable banking along with the latest technological advances in the financial industry.”

There will be giveaways and a short history brochure of The Dime Bank during the open house. There also will be chances to win a coin collector basket of America the Beautiful Uncirculated Quarter Sets with certificates of authenticity. No purchase is necessary to win.  See a customer service representative to enter or for full details.  Sweepstakes ends Dec. 19.
