Company Overview

Apple Bank

From the remnants of the Civil War, a new America emerged. The country was shifting from an agrarian society to one that was more modernized, and various financial reforms compelled the formation of banks throughout the country. While many of those institutions have disappeared into history, Apple Bank continues to stand strong, tracing its roots to the founding bank that was established in 1863 in the Dutch community of Haarlem, New York. In prosperous Haarlem, a group of men committed to serve the financial needs of their neighbors under the auspices of the Haarlem Savings Bank. The Haarlem of that time would be unrecognizable today, with working farms and undeveloped lots dominating the landscape. In April 1863, these men convened at the Rosenbourgh Haarlem Bridge House, a tavern owned by one of the bank’s first trustees, to finalize paperwork that led to the bank opening its doors in June, about a month before the infamous draft riots tore apart the city.
