Incorporated in 1834 by act of the Massachusetts Legislature, Hingham Institution for Savings is one of America’s oldest banks.
When it was first incorporated, the Bank did not have a permanent building and we accepted deposits at David Harding’s general store on North Street in Hingham. Although we have long since outgrown the general store, we have not outgrown our focus on community, family, and local businesses. We are proudly independent and remain committed to preserving and expanding the legacy established at Hingham.
We enjoy deep, long-term relationships with many of our customers – we are quite literally invested in their success. Many of our customers are also long-term shareholders in the Bank and we know them from our active participation in the civic life of the communities in which we operate. They are our neighbors and friends, as well as our partners and customers. In our 187th year of business, we have every intention of continuing to earn the trust they have placed in us. If you are not already a customer or a shareholder, we invite you to contact us.
