FIELD OF MEMBERSHIPWe welcome you to the Eastmill Federal Credit Union family.

This force emerged in Germany during the 1800's and found fertile ground in Northern America in 1900. In 1908, the first legally chartered cooperative Credit Union Society was established in Manchester, New Hampshire. This Credit Union, St. Mary's, is still open today.
Credit Unions are chartered by groups of people having a common bond.
