Banking locally is a great way to lift up the community. By keeping your money in Maine, you’re supporting investment in local businesses and helping to grow the economy. That means every dollar deposited here makes a difference. Just another reason to bank locally.

When it was time to expand our business, Gorham Savings Bank was there to help us at every step. The loan process went quickly – a big benefit of using a community bank with local decision-making. Thanks to Gorham Savings Bank we were able to keep up with business without missing a beat, and now, business is better than ever.
