About L & N
L & N Credit Union was originally chartered in 1952 by Mr. D. C. Spain. The credit union was located in the back of a hardware store in Tarrant, Alabama. Mr. Spain established the credit union to provide railroad employees an alternative to pawning their railroad pocket watches in times of need. He started the credit union with his own money and a philosophy of co-workers helping each other, by saving and borrowing from themselves.
Years later, the credit union moved to our current location, although still in the back of the hardware store. The building was later destroyed by an 18 wheeler accident. At that time, the credit union was able to purchase the land and construct our current building.
Many years have come and gone but the core values and credit union principles Mr. Spain intended remain unchanged.
