Hard at Work in Massachusetts
The first of our predecessor banks, The Massachusetts Bank, was founded in 1784 not long after the country had won its independence. Early customers included Paul Revere, John Hancock, John Singleton Copley and James Bowdoin. The bank financed the first American shipping expedition to China just two years later and continued to expand across New England.

Today, Bank of America is one of the nation’s largest financial institutions and provides services to half of all American households.
