Town and Country Credit Union has been a member owned financial institution since 1939. Father Duren, of St. Boniface Church, Westphalia, started the Credit Union in 1939. The original name of the credit union was Westphalia Community Credit Union. Later the name was changed to Town and Country Credit Union. In 1983, a branch office was opened in Harlan. The Harlan office eventually became the main office and the Westphalia office became the branch. The Westphalia office remained open until 2000. In 2017, the branch office in Avoca was opened.
