More Than 150 Years Of
Banking For Good

The story of Gorham Savings Bank is one of community. It’s the story of family homes funded and dreams realized. Of ideas becoming businesses and businesses becoming livelihoods. Since our humble beginning over 150 years ago, GSB has been dedicated to using all our resources—from our capital to our elbow grease—to ensure the bank is a force for good in the lives of everyone we touch. In Gorham, to be sure, but also in communities all over southern Maine.

Being A Force For Good
Begins With Doing Good.

We work hard to put into action the values upon which Gorham Savings Bank was founded. We do it by being good to our customers and making a point to put our energy and resources back into the community. See how Gorham Savings Bank is making a difference in southern Maine today.
