Hingham Institution for Savings first opened its doors for business in 1834. Deposits were accepted at David Harding's store on North Street on the last Saturday of the month from 10:00-12:00. On the Bank's first day, 57 people came to deposit a total of $2,430.00. The first depositor was Abiel Cudworth, Jr. of Scituate who deposited $60.00 followed by Daniel Basset who later became Bank president. In an article published by the Hingham Gazette on the opening day of the Bank, our founders explained their reasons for establishing a savings bank: "Parents, by making their children depositors, can teach them the advantages of savings habits and lessons of economy which may be remembered throughout life."
We continue to build upon our reputation as a fair and well-respected community bank, with over $1 billion in assets and 32,000 deposit accounts. Our products and services share a single mission. Whether the account relationship is a personal or commercial real estate loan, a non-profit concern, or a child's savings account, we are consistently forthcoming in our commitment. We believe in strong and vibrant communities and the building blocks that create them: personal service, sound business leadership and community spirit.
