About Somerset Trust Company
Our mission as an independent community bank has remained unchanged for over 125 years. We are committed to providing excellent service and competitive products as well as maintaining a high profile in the growth and economic development of Somerset and Cambria counties in Pennsylvania.
In 1889, the town of Somerset, described by a newspaper at that time as “an aggressive mountain town”, was growing with a population of almost 4,000. Businessmen and community leaders realized the emerging need for a local bank if their community was to continue to thrive. Congressman and Civil War veteran Edward Scull, and the fourth of his six sons, George R. Scull, turned that vision into a reality when they established what was to become Somerset Trust Company.
That independent community vision still exists today at Somerset Trust. Now under the leadership and guidance of the fifth generation of the Scull family, the bank has endeavored to enhance the traditional qualities of community banking by effectively using technology to support excellent service to customers.
The more than 300 people employed by Somerset Trust Company are committed to a common mission – to provide excellent personal service and financial products to customers, and to contribute to the overall growth and economic development of the region. You can depend on Somerset Trust Company to serve the best interest of our community, customers, shareholders, and staff far into the future.
