About Us


Carthage Savings and Loan was founded in 1888 , making our bank the longest running "Hometown Bank" in Jefferson and Lewis Counties.


The Association remains "Mutual" as our holding company has no stockholders. We are here to serve our customers with no conflicting profitability pressures. A "Mutual" is similar to a Credit Union with the exception that we pay income taxes.

We manage over $170,000,000 in assets with a $145,000,000 loan portfolio primarily funded with local deposits. Our Association has three full service offices. We are well capitalized by all regulatory standards.

Carthage Savings continues to make every attempt to provide the highest quality service to our members at the lowest possible cost. Our mission "To Provide Quality Financial Services that Exceed our Members' Expectations while Enhancing the Communities We Serve" is a promise we have lived up to for over 125 years.

Carthage Savings and Loan is deeply committed to the communities we serve. We are dedicated to being a part of the north country's future prosperity.

The Association's Board, Management and Staff are proud of our history and look forward to building customer relationships. Please contact us at 315-493-3480 and we would be happy to tell you more.
