Trusted by neighbors since 1871.

We have been devoted to the public welfare of the Hudson Valley since February 1st, 1871, when twenty-one citizens of Saugerties petitioned New York State for a charter as the Board of Trustees of Saugerties Savings Bank. The name changed to Sawyer Savings Bank in 1973 — weathering all business cycles and growing ever since.

The bank doesn’t have stockholders. All its assets are held in a trust exclusively for the benefit of its depositors — you. We invest those deposits in the community: building homes, creating jobs, aiding capital expansion and helping the area and its people to grow and prosper.
