In the summer of 1996, a group of local businessmen and farmers began to take steps to organize a community bank. Based on feedback we received from area residents, farmers and businesses, the group realized that the many changes and consolidations occurring within the banking industry were beginning to affect the local availability of quality banking services. The members of this group were nearly all life-long residents of the area. As a result of significant research and discussion, over thirty local families pulled together to establish a new community bank.
