About Emerald Bank

The State Bank of Burden was organized in 1884. The two story bank building was built that same year at a cost of $6,000. Today we are still operating out of the same two story building. We have been serving the Burden and surrounding communities since that time with a personal banking style that many people have forgotten.

In 1993 we branched to Oxford with the opening of the OXFORD COMMUNITY BANK and built a permanent branch bank building in 1996. January 1, 2005 the State Bank of Burden and its branch, Oxford Community Bank changed its name to EMERALD BANK. The Board of Directors made this move to have one common name for all locations.

The Directors, Officers and Employees desire to be a bank that their customers feel comfortable and less intimidated to than the larger banks. Our staff wishes to maintain a sense of ease in coming to the EMERALD BANK for their banking business. We take pride in knowing that we make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

Our mission as an Independent Community Bank is to build lasting relationships, one account at a time.
