February 1887: the first Groundhog Day is observed in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. March 1887: Anne Sullivan begins teaching Helen Keller. April 1887: Argonia, Kansas elects Susanna M. Salter as the first female mayor in the United States. May 1887: NVE Bank opens in Englewood, New Jersey! It’s hard to believe that was 130 years ago, but reflecting back in the context of those incredible historical milestones certainly helps put things into perspective. NVE has considerable history and deep roots in our communities.
In the decades since, NVE Bank has been a pioneer in community banking, supporting small businesses, adopting the latest financial tools to help our customers thrive, and always providing the highest level of personalized service. We’ve also helped our customers and communities navigate challenging times: the Crash of ’29; the Early ‘80s Recession; Black Monday; the Dot-Com Crash; and, of course, The Great Recession. We’re proud to have weathered those storms, remaining a leading community mutual bank serving northern New Jersey. This month, we’re celebrating this huge accomplishment, and we hope you’ll join us!
NVE Bank will celebrate our 130th Anniversary by throwing a week-long party throughout our 12 Bergen County branches. From July 10 – July 15, 2017, all visitors are welcome in our branches to enjoy refreshments, free t-shirts and fidget spinners, and enter to win our special anniversary giveaway!

Now is a good time to remember that NVE Bank is an independent Mutual Bank. That means we do not answer to shareholders or Wall Street — we answer to our customers. In 2017, Bauer Financial Inc., the nation’s largest independent bank rating firm, awarded NVE its coveted 5-Star Rating, designating it as one of the strongest banks in the nation. As one New Jersey’s oldest and strongest financial institutions, we offer an extensive range of personal and business products and services to our customers, and are deeply involved in the communities we serve, dedicating hundreds of hours annually to civic and charitable event participation.
We hope you’ll join us in celebrating 130 years at NVE Bank! What have you got to lose?
