About Us

Welcome to Lee Bank!

Since 1852, when Lee Savings Bank opened its doors, the town of Lee and its people revolved around farming, marble quarries, lumber and paper mills. Skilled trades professionals were abundant, and the town drew many talented immigrants. Neighborhoods, churches, local businesses, and schools instilled Lee with a close-knit, self-contained identity.

Today, Lee is a 21st century town, yet close to its roots. A welcoming spirit and hardworking people reflect the essence of historical, small-town New England.

Lee Bank has endured as an independent community bank that has grown to serve the wider Berkshire County region. Yet we’ve stayed close to our founding principles: excellent service, sincerity of purpose and simplicity in banking.

We adhere to these standards each day by empowering our employees, customers, and community. Our values drive our work, our relationships, and our philanthropy. We help our neighbors buy homes, start and maintain businesses, build and renovate, make wise investments and help others in need.

As small-town New England has changed, so has the banking world, but Lee Bank remains ahead of the curve. As some of our neighboring institutions seek out a “bigger is better” path by expanding beyond their home base, we believe that “better is better.” Free from the expectations of shareholders, we focus fully on sustaining our role as Berkshire County’s “Premier Relationship Bank.”

We take pride in our up-to-date online and mobile technology, yet we remain equally committed to our local branches and in-person customer relationships. Our employees are our ambassadors and our direct link to the neighborhoods we serve.

In 2021 we launched the Lee Bank Foundation to support our long-standing commitment to community reinvestment in organizations that work to improve the lives of Berkshire county residents. In its first two years, the Foundation awarded 93 grants totalling $477,330 local non-profits. Your business with us supports our partnership with our community.

Thank you for your interest in Lee Bank. Feel free to call or email me directly anytime.

We look forward to hearing from you.
