First Bank is proud to welcome former Delanco Federal Savings Bank customers to the family!
The Cinnaminson branch was opened in 2006. Incorporated as a township in 1860, the name Cinnaminson is derived from the Lenni-Lenape word “Senamensing” (which translates to “Sweetwater”). The Lenni-Lenape Tribe came to this area from west of the Mississippi River in the 17th century.
Cinnaminson borders the Delaware River and is an eastern suburb of Philadelphia, making it convenient to I-95 and the Betsy Ross and Tacony-Palmyra bridges, as well as Routes 73, 90 and 130.
First Bank's Delanco branch represents a long history of banking in the township.
Being located at the confluence of the Delaware River and the Rancocas Creek originally inspired the name Delanco. Using a combination of both the creek and river names, the town originally came to be known as "Delaranco”. The name was later shortened to "Delanco”. In the mid-17th century, the town started to take shape with the construction of a railroad station, saw mill, post office and general store. By the 1880’s there were 150 households and a population of 450. This new growth gave purpose to forming an association to assist individuals in financing their homes. On April 19, 1890, a group of citizens met to organize a Building and Loan Association and the first loan was granted in August of 1890. This was the very beginning of the Delanco Federal Savings legacy that spanned over 126 years.
The Delanco branch is convenient to Route 130 as well as the Burlington-Bristol and Tacony-Palmyra bridges to Pennsylvania.
