About Us

Welcome to Provident State Bank

Provident State Bank is an independently owned community bank that was originally established on March 26, 1904, as the Provident Savings Bank of Preston, Maryland. The bank was opened primarily as a savings bank, but opportunities quickly arose for the bank to better service the needs of its community. Thus, in 1912 the bank changed to a state bank to provide its customers with all of the benefits of a commercial bank. Ever since then we have worked tirelessly to bring the members of our community a bank that they can rely on. Here at Provident State Bank, the customers always come first, which is why we are one of the best banks in the area. Between our hard working attitude and our hometown feel, there is no local bank better than Provident State Bank.

In 1972 the Directors of Provident State Bank decided to expand from Preston and built their first branch in Secretary, Maryland. Over the next thirty-five years, the bank opened nine additional locations in the Mid-Shore Area. Today Provident State Bank has ten banking locations in Caroline, Dorchester, Talbot, Wicomico, and Sussex counties. Our mission is to understand the core values of the customers and communities we service while delivering the BEST service of any bank on the Mid-Shore and Lower Shore. If you are trying to find a bank in the area with the optimal combination of efficiency and friendliness, then Provident State Bank is the perfect choice for you.
