The Birth of BayPort Credit Union
In 1928, nine shipyard workers from Newport News Shipbuilding wanted to form an organization with a specific purpose as a low-interest source of loans and a trusted place to deposit money. So the shipbuilders of oil tankers, ocean liners, and United States Navy battleships pooled their money to establish a Credit Union Charter. The Newport News Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Company Employees’ Credit Union opened for official business on June 1, 1928. During the first month of operations, the member-owned credit union collected $973 in deposits and granted $250 in loans.
