Summit Hill will soon become Carbon County's largest community without a bank.
First Niagara will be closing its Summit Hill branch, located at 2 East Ludlow St., on Friday, Dec. 28.
It is advising its customers that accounts will transfer to the Lansford branch of the bank, located at 13 W. Ridge St.
The closing of the bank has been anticipated for some time by local residents.
Late last year, First Niagara Eastern Pennsylvania Regional Sales Manager Joseph Tedesco announced the branch would be closing in early 2012.
