Award Winning Financial Strength

BauerFinancial 5 Stars

Earning the highest five-star rating from BauerFinancial shows we’re one of the strongest banks in the country. But it’s our reputation that keeps us growing. We built it over 130 years, as we became the people our neighbors could bank on during history’s downturns and boomtimes. We have earned your trust. We’re here for you now.

Our dedicated staff will go above and beyond to meet your needs. You can be certain of getting great customer service because in times like these, great local banking makes a solid difference. Working hard for our customers is where we really shine.
