David Raven, President and CEO of The Honesdale National Bank, announced the groundbreaking of new office space in Hallstead.

HNB representatives participated in the groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, May 17 in partnership with representatives from the land developer, Eleven Roses, LLC.

In making the announcement, Raven stated, “We are extremely excited for the expansion of HNB’s footprint further into Susquehanna County. This location will not only offer full-service consumer banking solutions, but will serve as a location to serve the business banking and wealth management needs of the community.”

As HNB’s 12th full-service location, the new Hallstead office will be erected at 313 Main Street, Hallstead, PA (intersection of Rose Street and Route 11). The office will be complete with drive-up lanes, a 24-hour ATM, and night depository.
