Founded in 1873 and originally chartered as The Evans and Wood Bank, The National Bank of Rising Sun charter was applied for and obtained on June 8, 1880. The name remained the same until a state charter was applied for and approved in June 2002, when the institution became NBRS Financial.
Locally owned and managed since its inception, NBRS Financial provides a broad range of services to its individual and business customers. Because of its local affiliations, the bank is able to remain the same strong, reliable, and safe bank as when it began. In fact, NBRS Financial is one of only two banks in the state of Maryland to stay open and solvent during the years of the Great Depression.
Over 100 years after its original charter, NBRS Financial opened its first branch in Havre de Grace, Maryland. Since 1999, NBRS Financial has successfully expanded to an institution with six branches, including one in Pennsylvania.
NBRS Financial continues to be an independent, Maryland-based community bank with a primary market area that includes Cecil and Harford counties in Maryland, Chester, Lancaster, and York counties in Pennsylvania.
A customer driven organization that continually strives to exceed the needs of our customers, our employees, and our shareholders, NBRS Financial is a bank with a solid foundation in the past and a clear eye on the future.
