our history

Bradford National Bank was founded in 1867 by James Bradford and his son, Samuel. While there are no official records attesting to the fact, it is believed that the bank was started with $10,000 in capital. The strong foundation the Bradfords provided enabled the bank to withstand numerous threatening times, surviving when many other banks were forced to close their doors. With the future and service to our clients in mind, Bradford National Bank has added many new financial products and services. These products and services allow us to provide better service while maintaining the safety and security for which we are noted.
