Communities. Families. Chesapeake Bank. Let’s celebrate all of us.

In 1900, local watermen, farmers, and small business owners became our first customers as we opened our first bank in a steamboat port of the Rappahannock. Since then, we’ve been fortunate to serve four generations of families and businesses throughout the Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula, Williamsburg, Richmond, and Chesterfield. And as we recognize our 120th year, we know that all of you are the reason we are here.

We will continue to support the communities we serve and the small businesses that are the backbone of our economy for as long as it takes.
