In July 2006, a group of local business people started this bank to serve the needs of people in our community. The bank started in an old gas station in Lewes but soon opened a new headquarters building on RT 1 in Lewes. In 2007, a Rehoboth location on RT 1 opened.
Today the bank has grown to over $225 million in assets and serves clients throughout Sussex County with both business and consumer banking products. It is governed by an 11 member Board of Directors.
