Focused on Better Not Bigger

Today, it seems we’re always looking at the next big thing. We seek out the big shots, the big ideas, and even the big deals. Because bigger is supposed to be better.

At First County Bank, we take a different view – focusing on better banking for our customers for nearly 170 years.

Here Yesterday. Today. And to Stay.

Since our founding, First County Bank has measured success not through the size of our assets or the span of our branch network, but by the impact we’ve made in the communities we serve.

While other banks enter new and unfamiliar territories through mergers and other means, we’ve strived to stay close to home – measuring our success by that of our neighbors as we help them to build their homes, their businesses, and achieve their goals.

And by the impact our customers make on the cities and towns of Fairfield County.
