About First Northern Bank - Rancho Cordova Financial Center
We've stood the test of time First Northern has operated safely with the same ownership throughout two World Wars, two depressions, and 19 recessions. Today we're STRONGER than ever!
Back in 1910, a group of Dixon folks believed they weren't getting the kind of banking services they needed and decided to do something about it. In the spirit of the independent, do-it-yourself tradition of their farming community, these men and women organized their state-chartered savings bank, Northern Solano Bank.
The bank was to be back with all local capital and no outside investment or affiliation. Those present elected a board of directors and appointed a committee to go to San Francisco to obtain a safe and other necessary supplies. Just twelve days after the organizational meeting, Northern Solano Bank opened for business in a remodeled former ice cream parlor with a staff of two.
