Founded in 1875 by 17 local business owners, we have proudly stood as a trusted institution in the communities we serve. Starting with a $17,000 investment and one branch on the picturesque Guilford Town Green, GSB has grown to a six-office, $700 million bank.
Time has passed, but our commitment to the community remains equally strong. The first item on our strategic plan is to always remain a mutual savings bank. We have no stockholders. That means it's in our best interest that you succeed. You thrive, we thrive. This customer focus sets us apart from other financial institutions.

Thimble Island Brewing Company
All else aside, passion is a key ingredient in entrepreneurial success. That's certainly the case for Justin Gargano and Mike Fawcett, two longtime Branford natives whose dream of crafting a fine beer turned into the Thimble Island Brewing Company. Today, the company serves up more than two dozen different styles of beer at over 250 restaurants throughout the state.
We're proud to combine the values of a small bank with big bank capabilities. Our small size means you work directly with decision-makers who live in your community, resulting in a level of personalized service that larger banks can't match. Our size keeps us nimble, and allows us to create relationships tailored to your specific needs.FIND PRODUCTS
