Bar Harbor, Maine – Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is celebrating its 135th anniversary as a leader in banking, financial services, and wealth management in Northern New England. The Bank was incorporated on March 4, 1887, in Bar Harbor, Maine, where it is still headquartered.

“We are excited to celebrate this milestone and incredibly proud of the success that has been achieved over the course of 135 years,” said Curtis C. Simard, President and CEO of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust. “It’s humbling to consider that the Bank has not only persevered through world wars, pandemics, and significant economic events but has flourished and grown into one of the largest community banks in Northern New England. We are honored that generations of Northern New Englanders have chosen us as their trusted advisor and provider of financial services, and we look forward to serving the many generations to come.”

The Bar Harbor Banking and Trust Company was formed in 1887. It was the first formal banking institution located on Mount Desert Island. The Bank’s success in Bar Harbor led to the opening of a second location in Northeast Harbor, Maine, in 1914. As it grew, the Bank continued to expand its operations, adding two more locations on Mount Desert Island and several locations along the Maine coast. Today, the Bank offers more than 50 branches and 90 ATMs across Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.

In addition to its professional success, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust has made a tremendous social and economic impact on the communities it serves. The Bank has donated millions of dollars to local nonprofit organizations over its 135-year history, and thousands of Bank employees have served as leaders and volunteers for various organizations championing civic and social causes.

To celebrate its 135th anniversary, the Bank is hosting a drawing to give away $135 gift cards to winners of a raffle that can be entered at all of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust branches during the week of February 28 through March 4. Visit www.barharbor.bank/anniversary to see the full contest rules.

Bar Harbor, Maine – Bar Harbor Bankshares (NYSE American: BHB), the parent company of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust, is pleased to announce that the Bank has been recognized as one of “America’s Best Banks” by Newsweek.

Newsweek Magazine recognized Bar Harbor Bank & Trust as an "America's Best Banks" winner in the small bank category for Maine. Best Bank winners were selected from among 2,508 financial institutions and assessed on more than 30 separate factors including the overall health of the bank, customer service performance and features, digital and branch presence, account and loan options, interest rate offerings, and fees. Newsweek defined a “Small Bank” as bank with less than $10 billion in assets and among the five banks with the most branches in the state.

"We are extremely honored to stand out across the country as Maine's Best Small Bank," said Bar Harbor Bank & Trust President & CEO Curtis C. Simard. "Bar Harbor Bank & Trust has always taken the lead in presenting our customers with the financial technology they require, offering mobile banking, mobile deposits, online account openings, Zelle®, and sophisticated treasury tools for our business customers. Our innovative strategies make it possible to offer our customers the best technology, while still maintaining our personal approach to banking with our Customer Service Center and full-service branch network of more than 50 branches across Northern New England."

Many of the Bank’s innovative products and services were already in place when the COVID-19 pandemic required the implementation of new safety measures. The Bank leveraged those resources and offered new loans and loan forgiveness programs to support individuals and businesses needing assistance. More than a year and a half after the start of the pandemic, the Bank continues to keep interest rates competitive, provide advanced banking technology, and keep branches safely open for customers. These efforts by the Bank have helped to keep families and small businesses thriving while subsequently reinforcing the economy across Northern New England.

"As the premier community bank in Northern New England, we understand the different challenges facing our customers and our communities today," said Bar Harbor Bank & Trust’s Director of Retail Delivery Marion Colombo. "I am extremely proud of our teams across the entire Bank. They continue to show up every day with compassion and assuredness to help find financial solutions for the individuals and businesses in our communities. This award reflects their passion and the strong culture that they have helped to build at Bar Harbor Bank & Trust."

Bar Harbor, Maine – Bar Harbor Bank & Trust recently presented donations totaling more than $9,600 to five Northern New England nonprofit organizations from its employee-driven charitable giving program, Casual for A Cause. The recipients of the contributions collected in Q2 2021 are: Boots2Roots, Chandler Center for the Arts, NextStep Domestic Violence Project, Paramount Theatre, and West Central Behavior Health.

“While the nonprofit organizations Bar Harbor Bank & Trust employees selected in Q2 2021 are diverse in the services they provide, they are unified in a common goal and that’s to improve the quality of life in our communities,” said Jack Frost, VP Director of Community Giving at Bar Harbor Bank & Trust. “We are honored to support them and the invaluable services they provide.”

Casual for a Cause gives Bank employees the opportunity to dress casually on Fridays in exchange for a bi-weekly payroll deduction made to a pool of funds collected during each quarter. The employees then vote on the nonprofits to receive their contributions. Employees have donated more than $100,000 to more than 50 organizations across Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont since the program launched in 2018.
