History

1920 Employees Inside Bank The Delaware National Bank of Delhi is the oldest bank in Delaware County, and the oldest corporation in the community of Delhi. We are also the 25th oldest bank in the country, and the 3rd oldest in New York State.

In 1839 we opened our doors for business on the second floor of a storefront on Delhi's Main Street. In 1841, the corner lot next to the Courthouse Square was purchased from Amasa Parker for $500. Charles Hathaway is credited with erecting the white pillared structure, which still functions as our bank today. The building was damaged by fire on January 1, 1934. While repairs were made, we operated out of the St. John's Parish House. While the exterior of the building remained unchanged, the interior was remodeled three times, first in 1950, second in 1973, and lastly in 1997.

We acquired property at 99 Main Street in 1974 and a two lane drive-in, walk-in branch was constructed. It met with such success that in 1997 it was replaced with a new three lane drive-in and operation center located conveniently across from our Main Bank. Its popularity continues.

In the Fall of 1998, we opened our first branch on State Route 28 in Margaretville, NY. The unique structure features three drive-up lanes and a 24-hour ATM.

In the Fall of 2007, we opened our Davenport branch at the intersection of Prosser Hollow Road and State Route 23 at Pindars Corners, Davenport, NY. The full-service branch features three drive-up lanes, a night depository, and a 24-hour ATM.

In the Fall of 2010, we opened our Hobart branch on Main Street in Hobart, NY. The full-service branch features two drive-up lanes, a night depository, and a 24-hour ATM.

And in the Fall of 2012, we opened our Oneonta Loan Office. The loan office is located at 265 Main Street, Oneonta NY.

And in the Spring of 2017, we opened our Sidney Loan Office. The loan office is located at 276 State Highway 7 Sidney NY.
