Bank of America began serving Rhode Island nearly 220 years ago. A group of local merchants, mariners and civic leaders founded Providence Bank in 1791, and it remains in business to this day. Fleet National Bank acquired Providence Bank’s successor entity in 2000, and the company entered the Bank of America family in 2005.
