Harborstone Turns 60!

On October 10, 1955, McChord Credit Union opened its doors as a member-owned, not-for-profit alternative to banking. A name change and 60 years later, Harborstone is still serving members with the same member-owned mentality—in person, over the phone, and on your digital devices.

To celebrate 60 years together, we set out to talk to some of our loyal members and longest-tenured employees to recognize them and learn about their experiences with Harborstone over the years. One common thread that connects members and employees is the feeling of trust and passion for an exceptional banking experience. Throughout the year, we will publish their stories.
