C-U history lesson this summer?
The history of credit unions in North America goes back to the early 1900s and the very first credit union was formed in Manchester, NH. In that very location is where America's Credit Union Museum is located today! The Maine Credit Union League and Maine's credit unions are proud partners and supporters of America's CU Museum. It's worth a visit this summer or anytime. Click here for information.
