Banking isn’t the most important thing we do.

Now, that may sound a little strange coming from a bank but hear us out. At Chesapeake Bank, we view banking solutions as people solutions. For example, a home loan isn’t just a loan; it’s more space for a growing family. We provide the products and services that empower you to reach your goals, which in turn, benefits our entire community. Beyond banking is about helping our neighbors (even the furry ones) – and that’s the most important thing we do.

From the shores of the Rappahannock to the banks of the James, Chesapeake Bank is here for you with personal and business banking, online banking, lending, and wealth management services. Stop in a branch or call us and you’ll experience the difference of a true community bank.


We’ve been named American Banker’s “Best Bank to Work For” since 2013. Our employees will tell you we’re a friendly, knowledgeable, and fun-loving group who cares deeply about the community we all live in. Come work with us.


Going beyond banking for our customers has been our mindset since we opened our doors along the shores of the Northern Neck in 1900. Many of our customers have been with us for decades. Generations even. We’ve always been responsive to those in our community, as evidenced by our former floating “Boat ‘N Bank,” created to better serve workers at the Irvington oyster packing plant back in 1968. Now, as the bank expands into other territories across the Commonwealth, we continue to solve challenges and innovate while staying true to our hometown roots.
