History

Kennebec Federal Savings was established in 1936 as a mutual (customer owned) financial institution.  Born in the middle of the Great Depression, Kennebec Federal Savings has withstood economic ups and downs, all the while doing what it was chartered to do, serving the housing and financial needs of the Waterville area.  Today, in this difficult economy, KFS is strong financially and has plenty of money to lend.

There's only one bank that can truly call itself Waterville's own.  The Bank’s board of directors and staff take great pride in being the only bank whose base of operations is right here in Waterville.  That means all decisions are made locally, all loans are serviced right here in Waterville, and you can stop by anytime to see any of the Bank staff, including the President.

Kennebec Federal Savings has continually reinvested in the Waterville community over the years.  Both of the Bank's full-service locations are right here in Waterville.  According to Allan Rancourt, President of KFS, "Our home is here, just like yours."

Kennebec Federal Savings began in 1936 in the Council Chambers at Waterville City Hall.  Later, the Bank moved into an office on Common Street, remaining there until 1975, when the bank moved to its current location at 70 Main Street.  In 1986, the bank doubled in size with the acquisition of the adjacent Dunham’s building. Over the past two years, KFS has updated the interior and Main Street exterior of their downtown office to provide customers more comfort and convenience.  

In 2007, KFS opened a second office at 11 Washington Street, just off Kennedy Memorial Drive.  After considering locations in other communities, KFS chose to expand its commitment right here in Waterville.  The Washington Street office provides drive-up conveniences, which could not be added at the downtown location.    Comfortable seating, coffee bars, and internet banking stations are available at both locations.
