About Us

The Origins of Sutton Bank

Founded in 1878, the history of Sutton Bank is fundamentally linked to the development of southeastern Seneca and western Huron Counties. Attorney Lester Sutton opened the bank to serve the growing needs of merchants and farmers in Attica, OH. It has long been a community pillar, staying strong through the Great Depression, times of war and fluctuating economies. Sutton continues to be a vibrant bank fueled by the vigor and efficiency of its community.

A progressive, privately held independent, community bank, Sutton Bank has consistently been named one of the top small business and agricultural lenders in the State of Ohio. This supports our dedication to meeting the financial needs of the community, and our commitment to providing exceptional customer service with local decision-making.

At its core, banking has always been a business of responsibility and earning the trust of its customers. The leaders of Sutton Bank feel a responsibility to remain independent and provide products and services that grow out of understanding our customers’ needs, both individuals and businesses. Our roots are deeply tied to the people, commerce and values of north central Ohio. We know the people and the communities we serve. Our employees live and work in these communities, and participate in the decisions of local business organizations. Today, Sutton Bank operates eight full-service branch offices throughout a 4-county area.
